A judge has ordered a Chicago woman held on bail after she allegedly resisted arrest and caused an officer to shoot himself with a stun gun.

Irene Bramwell was arrested Friday.

The 56-year-old woman allegedly broke into a building on the city's South Side and then threw a chair at an officer.

Then, after she was struck by an officer's stun gun, Bramwell is accused of continuing to flail her arms, causing an officer to accidentally discharge the stun gun and shoot himself.

The officers were treated for minor injuries.
