MASON CITY | A Plymouth woman has been arrested after trying to kick and bite two nurses early Tuesday morning.

Melissa Jo Hauge, 41, is charged with two misdemeanor counts of assault on persons in certain occupations after an incident at the Mercy Medical Center--North Iowa emergency room.

About 1:19 a.m. Tuesday, Hauge allegedly tried to kick and bite two nurses while she was in the emergency room for treatment.

According to court documents, Hauge bit one nurse's arm but did not cause injury, while the other was in fear of “immediate physical contact which would be painful or injurious.”

Hauge was booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail and later released on her own recognizance after her initial court appearance. 

She is scheduled to appear in Cerro Gordo County District Court March 23.
