39-year-old Heidi Sutton was jailed late Saturday night after Metro Nashville Police responded to a medical call on 12th Ave South. Sutton told responding officers she was experiencing a panic attack, and they informed her that an ambulance was on the way to assist her. Officers then directed her inside in order to stay warm, at which point she reportedly threw a cell phone at one of the officers, aiming at his head. Multiple officers then took Sutton to the ground, where she resisted arrest until she was eventually subdued and handcuffed. She was then transported to booking, where she was charged with assault of an officer and resisting arrest.
