Police arrested a woman Wednesday in an assault on a Biloxi police officer.

Alicia Beth Ainsworth, 33, of Biloxi, faces a charge of simple assault on a police officer.

Officers were called to a business in the 1900 block of Beach Boulevard where Ainsworth was reported to be trespassing and refusing to leave the property, Lt. Chris De Back said in a press release.

When they made contact with Ainsworth, she became combative and assaulted one of the officers who was trying to persuade her to leave. The officer did not require medical attention, De Back said.

Ainsworth is being held in the Harrison County jail in lieu of a $10,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Bruce Strong.
