"She then assaulted two detectives with kicks and punches.

"She was moved to the ground and she kicked a detective to the face, threatening to have them killed."

The girl was taken to Ballina Police Station, where she was charged with Assault and Assault Police.

She will appear at Ballina Children's Court in February.
