Florida woman kicked Liberty officer, spat at two of them

Staff report


An Orlando, Fla., woman faces multiple charges after she kicked one police officer and spat at others who responded to a call about a car accident in the township Monday night, police said.

According to a police report, Cassandra George, 30, told officers she was too drunk to drive after she rear-ended another vehicle.

Officers said George was unable to maintain her balance and smelled heavily of burnt marijuana and alcohol. She also had an unidentified green substance on her tongue, police said.

Officers were unable to perform a field-sobriety test because George claimed she was scared and wouldn’t follow instructions.

Officers said they handcuffed George and attempted to put her in the back seat of the police car.

When an officer placed her on the seat, she rolled back and kicked him in the sternum with her high heel and knocked him backward. Another officer sat her upright, and she spat at them, the report said.

Police said they found an empty beer container and a half-empty bottle of an alcoholic beverage in George’s vehicle.

George was taken to the Trumbull County jail and charged with harassment with bodily substance, resisting arrest and assault on a police officer. Police also cited her for operating a vehicle impaired and having an open container, the report said.

George was arraigned Tuesday morning in Girard Municipal Court, and a judge set her bond at $7,500.
