Hill, 29, is alleged to have punched the two officers before biting the female officer on the upper arm.

It comes as police across UK have been clamping down on Britons flouting lockdown with people having barbecues on Brighton beach and sunbathing in Hyde Park.
Last weekend a south London park closed after 3,000 people visited despite the government's plea for people to stay indoors.  
The officer had to go to hospital after the incident on Thursday around 6.40pm. She was later discharged.  
She had been delivering Easter eggs to children days earlier while out on patrol, GMP said.   
Chief Constable Ian Hopkins later tweeted: 'Words fail me when it comes to some people's behaviour. 
'This is shocking at the best of times, but during a Coronavirus Pandemic this is just the lowest of the low. 
'I trust the CPS & Court will now do what we all expect of them!'
Home Secretary Priti Patel retweeted the message.  
A Chief Constable said yesterday that the police could soon look through people's shopping items for 'essential items' and impose road blocks if the lockdown wasn't taken seriously. 
Home Secretary Priti Patel said the Government was not considering more stringent lockdown restrictions.
