SAN JACINTO, Calif. (KABC) -- A San Jacinto woman was arrested when she punched an officer who was responding to a disturbance call in the area.
Shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday, a San Jacinto police officer responded to a disturbance call in the 100 block of North Alessandro Avenue.
The officer discovered that area resident Jackie Carter, 52, had threatened to kill a roommate and her family.
