A Sudbury police officer who attempted to help a staggering New Hampshire woman on Oct. 27 wound up making an arrest of the woman.
According to Sgt. Robert Grady, the officer was patrolling Boston Post Road just after 6 p.m. when he noticed the woman on the sidewalk.
While attempted to assist the woman, the officer noticed she appeared to be under the influence, Grady said.
"The officer was originally going to place her in protective custody," Grady said.
Stephanie W. Record, 50, of 37 Petersborough St., Apt. 3, in Jaffrey, N.H., started to resist the officer and pulled away. The officer was forced to restrain her as she attempted to jump into traffic, Grady said.
Record was arrested and charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
She was held overnight and arraigned at Framingham District Court on Oct. 28.
