A woman was granted a judicial diversion after she brawled with officers when they took her beer away.
The woman, Jerri Leann Martin, 33, was granted an 11-month, 29-day judicial diversion on the charge of assault. She will also have to perform 16 hours public service work and undergo a drug and alcohol assessment. The diversion means she can have her criminal record erased as long as she gets into no more trouble during her year on probation.
