A woman was arrested Thursday for fighting an EMS supervisor in South Boston, state police said.
Two state troopers were conducting a traffic stop on Preble Circle in South Boston when Boston fire and EMS were responding to a medical emergency at a building near the rotary. Troopers heard a man yelling “get back” and someone yelling back in response, state police said.
Troopers saw a woman, later identified as Donna A. Taylor, 37, of Boston, tried to force herself into the building by pushing the Boston EMS supervisor.
State police said Taylor “began flailing her arms, striking him in the head and upper body. The supervisor attempted to push her way in self-defense, but she continued her assault unabated, and the two ended up struggling in traffic on Old Colony Avenue at Preble Circle.”
Taylor was booked at the South Boston state police barrack and was charged with assault on ambulance personnel, assault and battery on a person over 60, assault and battery, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Thursday’s assault comes just a day after an EMT was stabbed outside a Boston courthouse.
