Three teenage girls face a slew of charges after a liquor-fuelled rampage at their foster home late Monday night.

Their foster mother was sent to hospital after two of the girls beat her with a chair, police say, in what turned out to be just the start of a troubled evening.

Officers were called at about 10:25 p.m. on Monday to the foster home, which is the 300-block of Louise Avenue.

They say that two 16-year-old girls had come back to the house drunk and with more liquor on them. But when their foster mom took the booze away, the teens turned on her — punching and kicking her as she sat on a couch, and hitting her in the upper body with a chair.

The 45-year-old woman needed an ambulance, and was hospitalized, but has since been released.

One of the girls also stole the woman's car keys, police say, and was trying to drive off when officers arrived. She slammed the car into reverse, hitting the house, before trying to drive across the home's lawn, crashing into a tree instead.

She was arrested once the car came to a stop, although not before managing to kick one of the officers in what police called "a sensitive area of the body" — the officer's groin.

This girl has been charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, theft of motor vehicle, dangerous driving, impaired driving, refuse blood demand, assaulting a peace officer, and failure to comply with probation for consuming alcohol when ordered to abstain. She was treated at hospital for minor injuries sustained when the car's air bags went off and then held in jail overnight to appear in court Tuesday.

The second girl was also arrested and held in jail overnight. She is facing charges of aggravated assault as well as assaulting a peace officer, after she allegedly spit into the eyes of one of officers arresting her.

A third girl who lives at the home, a 14-year-old, came back while police were still at the scene, and was arrested for being drunk. She was also jailed overnight, and will have a court date in June to face charges of failure to comply with probation.
