A woman was arrested after allegedly assaulting a Beatrice police officer at Beatrice Community Hospital.

Julie Dobesh, 30, was arrested Tuesday for third-degree assault on an officer and assault on an officer with bodily fluids.

Police responded to Beatrice Community Hospital Monday night for a report of a female who had a hand injury following a dispute.

Hospital staff were concerned the suspect would become violent and noted she was very agitated.

Dobesh told police the injury occurred after she got mad and punched a door and allegedly made suicidal comments.

She was placed in emergency protective custody and started punching the rail of her hospital bed.

When an officer attempted to restrain her, Dobesh allegedly pulled the officer's hair and and she was placed in handcuffs. While being restrained, she dug her nails into the officer's wrist, leaving three red marks and broken skin. She then allegedly spit in the officer's face and in the face of a nurse.

Dobesh was transported to the crisis center in Lincoln and taken into custody.

Her bond was set at $5,000, with a 10 percent deposit. Her next hearing is set for Oct. 19.
