    Police: Woman assaulted nurse

    MENDON — Police said a drunken Shrewsbury woman attacked a health care worker after her credit card was declined at an area hotel.

    Friday afternoon, state police responded to the Best Western Plus Inn & Suites on Route 4 after Jessica Lennon, 36, refused to check out of the hotel.

    According to police, Lennon was so intoxicated she was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center. While there, police said, she assaulted a nurse and attempted to assault police.

    Police charged Lennon with assaulting a health care worker and violating the conditions of her release on a prior charge. Those conditions prohibited Lennon from consuming alcohol.

    Lennon is scheduled to answer the charges Sept. 16 in Rutland criminal court.
