BAXTER, Minn. - A woman in Crow Wing County is accused of breaking a police officer's ankle as she struggled against her arrest.

Forty-four-year-old Jennifer Burnos, of Baxter, is charged with obstruction.

Burnos is being held in the Crow Wing County Jail on $75,000 bond without conditions. Baxter police say five officers responded to a call at a home Jan. 8 and were talking to Burnos when they discovered she had a warrant for her arrest in Hubbard County.
