An Elizabethtown woman accused of hitting a police officer earlier this month at Hardin County Justice Center pleaded guilty Monday to disorderly conduct.

Hardin District Judge Kim Shumate sentenced 21-year-old Tia Hager to 20 days in the Hardin County Detention Center.

Hager was arrested Sept. 11 on charges of third-degree assault and second-degree disorderly conduct after she allegedly struck an investigator with the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force in the chest, according to police. She also allegedly called the officer a derogatory name.

On Monday, Hager pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and prosecutors dismissed the assault charge.
