The vehicle was found on Alcester Road at around 10.30am on Wednesday.
The spokesperson said: ‘As officers were recovering the vehicle a crowd gathered and attempts were made to stop them including blocking the Lamborghini in by abandoning an Audi Q7.
‘Pieces of wood were thrown and two officers were assaulted and spat at but not injured.
‘A 31-year-old woman was arrested and subsequently charged with two counts of assaulting an emergency worker, obstructing police and driving without due care and attention. She is due to appear at Leeds Magistrates Court on October 14.
