VICTORIA - Two Victoria police officers have minor injuries in connection with the arrest of a woman involved in an alleged drug-induced incident.

Police were called to a home just before midnight Sunday amid reports of a domestic assault in progress.

Officers heard a woman screaming in a home and say they found two people inside, including the woman, suffering from some kind of drug-induced delirium.

Police say the woman became combative when they tried to arrest her.

Both people were transported to hospital when police believed their conditions were deteriorating.

Both people have since recovered from their medical emergencies, and the woman faces charges of assaulting police.
