WILTON — A 33-year-old woman faces multiple charges after being accused of assaulting a police officer and a paramedic who responded to a domestic disturbance Sunday afternoon, Wilton police Chief Heidi Wilcox said.

The woman, Kelly Hall, of Wilton, initially was arrested by police on domestic-violence charges in connection with the disturbance reported just before 1 p.m., Wilcox said.

A NorthStar ambulance service paramedic arrived at the scene and was assaulted by Hall, Wilcox said. The paramedic suffered minor injuries in the attack, Wilcox said, declining to give additional details.

While Hall was taken to jail in a police cruiser, she kicked out a window and broke the door frame. Hall then kicked a Franklin County sheriff’s deputy who tried to stop her from jumping out of the vehicle, Wilcox said.

The deputy, who had been assisting the Wilton town police officer making the arrest, suffered minor injuries, Wilcox said.

Police took Hall to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington, where she was treated and released to police custody, Wilcox said.

She was charged with assault on an officer, assault on an emergency medical technician, refusing to submit to arrest, criminal mischief and three counts of domestic-violence assault, Wilcox said.

Hall was being held on $300 cash bail Monday afternoon at Franklin County Detention Center in Farmington, a jail official said. The official did not know the date of Hall’s scheduled court appearance.

The police cruiser, owned by the town, is out of service. Wilcox said she planned to get an estimate Monday afternoon of the cost to repair the damage.
