PUEBLO — A woman in Pueblo had "beef" with an officer when she threw packets of Top Ramen noodles and other items as he was attempting to take someone into custody Wednesday night.

The Pueblo Police officer was on patrol when he ran a license plate at a motel and learned it was stolen.

After he ran the plate, a woman came out of a motel room and made her way to get in the driver's seat of the car.

The officer immediately went to take her into custody.

The department said she resisted and the officer got her to the ground, where he tried to place handcuffs on her.

While he was attempting to place her in custody, the second woman came out of the room and started throwing things at him.

PPD said the second woman was taken into custody when backup arrived.

Police said the first woman was arrested for motor vehicle theft and resisting arrest. She had a no-bond, nationwide extradition warrant for parole violation already, according to the department.

The second woman was cited for Interference.

PPD said the owner of the vehicle showed up and got his vehicle back.
