The driver failed a roadside screening test, proving herself to be impaired. 

RCMP says she soon became agitated, got out of the vehicle, and put "an unknown item into her mouth." 

The officer asked her what it was and told her to spit it out, but she wouldn't. 

"The officer was concerned that swallowing the item could have severe health consequences, so he attempted to remove it from her mouth. At that point, she bit his finger and refused to let go." 

It turns out it was hard candy. "The officer received minor injuries as a result of the assault. The suspect had no visible or reported injuries."

Next, "the accused was taken to an RCMP detachment to provide further breath samples, which confirmed she was over the legal limit."

The 35-year-old woman is facing charges including Impaired Operation of a Conveyance, Assaulting a Peace Officer, and Obstruction.
