Twenty-two-year-old Michaella Surat was charged with resisting arrest and obstructing a peace officer, both misdemeanors, in Fort Collins following her arrest in April.

Police say the Colorado State University student hit an officer multiple times after her boyfriend was detained outside a bar and also grabbed an officer by the throat. Authorities say force was needed to arrest her.

The officer, Randy Klamser, was cleared of wrongdoing in June after an internal investigation. Police said he followed standard procedure.

Surat’s lawyer said she sustained a concussion and bruises.
