Frances Platt, 52, is charged with assault on an officer and driving while impaired. According to a Charlotte newspaper, she allegedly stabbed a police officer with a crack pipe while he was trying to arrest her on Christmas Day.

An officer tried to pull the woman over because she was driving slowly. However, she did not stop and instead turned onto another street and stopped at the end of the road.

Police say Platt then lit a crack pipe as officers approached her car. The woman then allegedly stabbed one of the officer in the hand with a broken piece of the pipe as he tried to take her into custody.

The officer did not suffer serious injury.
