The O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office says they received a report of an assault at The Pride Group home.

They report that 25-year-old Ashleigh J. Sloan allegedly assaulted Jessica Burley, a staff member at the Pride Group home.

When the deputy attempted to arrest Ms. Sloan, she allegedly assaulted the deputy.

She is charged with simple assault — a simple misdemeanor — in connection with the assault on the staff member, and assault on a peace officer, which is a serious misdemeanor.

Neither assault required medical attention and no weapons were involved.

Sloan was transported to the O’Brien County Jail.

Sheriff Michael Anderson says Sloan was released from jail the next day on an unsecured appearance bond, and will appear in District Court at a later date.
