MERRIMACK — A woman out on personal recognizance bail for previous charges is now accused of assaulting a firefighter and a police officer in the early hours of Tuesday.

According to Merrimack Police Department, officers responded at 2:31 a.m. to the area of DW Highway and Priscilla Lane following reports of an apparently intoxicated woman.

Upon arrival, they encountered Katie Trepanier, 44, who was uncooperative and appeared highly intoxicated.

As Merrimack firefighters assisted at the scene, Trepanier allegedly assaulted a firefighter by kicking them in the chest.

When police attempted to arrest her, she also kicked a police officer in the chest.

During her transport to the police department, Trepanier tried to kick out a cruiser window, causing damage to the vehicle.

She faces two counts of simple assault and an additional count of criminal mischief for the incident.

Despite the charges, Trepanier was released on personal recognizance bail and transported to Hillsborough County House of Corrections for protective custody due to her intoxication.

Trepanier is scheduled to appear before the Merrimack 9th Circuit Court on Jan. 25 to respond to the charges.

Trepanier had recently been arrested in Nashua in December on multiple charges, including felony theft.

Nashua Police Department had taken Trepanier into custody for a theft incident at Kohl’s on Nov. 4, where she was identified on surveillance footage leaving the store with unpaid merchandise.

She is accused of returning to the store and committing theft a second time on Nov. 12.

An arrest warrant was issued, charging Trepanier with felony Theft By Unauthorized Taking.
