A Lawrenceburg woman was indicted March 11 after prosecutors said she assaulted a Frankfort police officer while intoxicated.

Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Emily Wilkey said Mallory Drury, 23, of Lawrenceburg, was driving while intoxicated Nov. 11 in Anderson County when she crashed her vehicle into a utility pole, causing several residents there to lose power.

An Anderson County sheriff’s deputy brought Drury to Frankfort Regional Medical Center after the crash to have a blood test to confirm the level of alcohol or drugs in her system, Wilkey said.

While in the hospital, Drury was allegedly belligerent, leading hospital staff members to call Frankfort police.

When the officer arrived, Wilkey said the deputy asked for her assistance getting Drury’s cell phone away from her.

When the officer asked for the phone, Drury allegedly refused. When the officer tried to take the phone, Wilkey said Drury dug her fingernails into the officer’s arm, drawing blood.

Drury also kicked the deputy, Wilkey said, and threatened to urinate on the officer.

Drury is now charged with third-degree assault and second-degree disorderly conduct.
