FARMINGTON — Police said a Temple woman faces charges that include drunken driving and assaulting an officer after driving through town late Sunday night.

Sarah Sullivan, 33, is charged with reckless conduct with a motor vehicle, operating under the influence, unlawful  possession of an illegal drug, imprudent speed, driving to endanger, failure to stop at an intersection, disorderly conduct, refusing to submit to arrest and assault on an officer, according to police.

Farmington Officer William Tanner was patrolling downtown when he spotted a speeding vehicle going through traffic lights at Main and Broadway just before midnight Sunday, police secretary Bonnie Pomeroy read from his report. The vehicle went down Front Street, turned onto Main Street and pulled into Irving, she said.

Sullivan resisted arrest, leading to a tussle with Tanner, Pomeroy said.

Farmington officers Ryan Rosie and Justin Blais, along with Cpl. Nathan Bean and Deputy Brad Timberlake of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and Officer Scott Jennings of the UMF Police Department assisted Tanner, she said.
