CORAL SPRINGS, FL– A 21-year-old woman has been arrested after she attacked a police officer who was attempting to take her into custody.
The incident was reported on May 8th at the Wawa at 7305 Sample Road.
Officials say that around 4 p.m. an officer who was assigned as extra security at the store noticed a vehicle that appeared to have heavy tint.
As the officer examined the vehicle, the driver, Faith Hall of Margate came around the vehicle and began filming and yelling at the officer.
Another occupant of the vehicle then got out of the vehicle and began yelling at the officer as well.
The first officer, now accompanied by another officer attempted to de-escalate the situation by asking for Hall’s car registration, insurance, and driver’s license.
Hall refused orders, as another officer detained the other occupant after he began reaching in his pockets.
Hall then went to grab something out of her vehicle but was grabbed by the other officer, who told her not to go into the vehicle because he could not see inside of it.
Hall went into the vehicle anyway.
She then kicked the officer three times in the groin and the leg after he attempted to put her in handcuffs.
Two other officers had to help put Hall into handcuffs.
She was taken to Broward Health Coral Springs for an evaluation before being transported to the Broward County Jail.
Hall has been charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, and operating a vehicle unsafely and with improper equipment.
Authorities reported that Hall’s 3-year-old son was in her car’s backseat when the incident occurred.
