A Murrieta woman was arrested in Burbank last month after police say she assaulted paramedics who treated her after she was involved in a vehicle collision.

Robin Freeman, 48, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, driving under the influence resulting in an injury traffic collision and battery on a firefighter.

Sgt. Derek Green, a spokesman for the Burbank Police Department, said Freeman was behind the wheel of a Honda Insight when she allegedly collided with a Ford F150 at around 4:50 p.m. on Jan. 28 at the intersection of Verdugo and Pass avenues.

Both drivers suffered minor injuries in the collision.

Paramedics from the Burbank Fire Department were treating Freeman when Green said she became combative and started to kick the first responders.

Officers at the scene determined Freeman was under the influence and, according to Green, witnesses said they saw the Honda traveling at high speeds prior to the collision as well as running two red lights.

Police also found her in possession of prescription medication and marijuana at the time of the crash.

Green added the medication was legally prescribed to Freeman.
