NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Authorities say two New Orleans police officers were punched and kicked in the groin as they tried to break up a fight on Bourbon Street. 

Citing an arrest warrant, Times-Picayune says five people were arrested following the incident Saturday night, including four who were charged with suspicion of battery of a police officer. 
The warrant says 26-year-old Patriceia Casher of Altamonte Springs, Florida, started causing a disturbance, prompting two officers to intervene. 

Police say the woman started throwing punches and kicked the two officers after being placed in handcuffs. Authorities also say 26-year-old David Wilson of Pascagoula, Mississippi, head-butted one of the responding officers. 
Police did not say whether the officers required medical treatment. 
It is unclear whether Casher or Wilson have attorneys.
