Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester woman was arrested on suspicion of DUI and kicking an Olmsted County deputy over the weekend.

The sheriff’s office says a deputy was driving on 19th St NW in Rochester around 2:00 am Saturday when he saw a vehicle coming at him in his lane. The driver of the other vehicle suddenly drove across the concrete median to get into the proper lane.

The deputy turned around and followed the vehicle as it turned onto West Circle Dr. and then to eastbound Highway 14.

The deputy pulled the vehicle over on the exit ramp to southbound Highway 52 and suspected the driver was under the influence and decided to arrest her. The deputy had one handcuff on the driver when she tried to run and kicked another officer in the upper arm.

The woman was eventually subdued and taken to jail.

She was identified as 38-year-old Sarah Drysdale.

News update:  Olmsted County's death total reaches milestone.
