A standoff in Marion, Virginia ends with a police officer being assaulted.

According to the Marion Police Department, a woman called 911 to report an assault Wednesday evening.

When officers got there they say the suspect was armed and took off to another house.

Police say Jessica Hudson, 29, came out of the home and, after a brief negotiation, so did Harold Plummer, 46.
      
Both Hudson and Plummer were arrested on scene and transported to the Smyth County Processing Center where police say Hudson kicked and bit an officer.

Both Plummer and Hudson are being held without bond at the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Abingdon facing multiple charges.
