Fighting for Florida Car Accident Victims Since 1977

February 21, 2018

Officers with the Melbourne Police Department were called in to the scene of a rear-end collision that took place several weeks ago on a Monday in Brevard County.  The official report paints a strange picture as it seems that one of the individuals involved in the two-car incident quickly became belligerent and aggressive towards the other person involved and law enforcement officials.

The report states that the ordeal began when a a 40-year-old Melbourne resident was driving her car in what is being described as an erratic manner.  As she made her way through traffic, it seems that she began shouting obscenities at the driver of another car.  It is not clear if something specific occurred to cause the woman to become so agitated or if her rage erupted for reasons that are currently unknown.

Either way, her aggression towards the other driver resulted in a rear-end collision between the two vehicles at the intersection of Croton Road and Eau Gallie Boulevard.  Somehow, the driver of the struck car managed to get the enraged driver to pull off to the side.  After she did so, the driver who caused the incident continued to yell and curse at the other driver.  Included in the shouts were desperate attempts to get the driver of the struck car to not call police.  These requests were ignored, and officers with the Melbourne Police Department arrived at the scene at around 5:30 in the evening, only a few minutes after the initial collision had taken place.

When the officers approached the still upset woman, she began to behave even more aggressively.  The report states that she walked into the street, narrowly avoided being struck by the still-moving traffic, shoved one of the attending police officers, and got as close as possible to the face of another officer in order to shout more directly into it.

The police decided to handcuff and arrest the woman, at which point she told them that she was peeing and expressed her desire that the pee would get on the officers as well.  The report indicated that the woman did in fact succeed in her goal.  As a trio of police officers attempted to get the woman into a cruiser she managed to kick one of them in the groin.

It was after the woman was locked in the cruiser that the officers looked inside of her car and saw the baby secured in a child seat.

The report concluded by saying that the child’s father had been located and reached and that the child was in his hands.  Bail for the woman was set at $18,500.  She faces numerous charges.
