PALM BAY, Florida – Police received a call about a woman fighting multiple patrons inside the Dog House Bar & Grill at 5270 Babcock Street in Palm Bay.
Jennifer Mae Rand, 26, was being held to the ground by multiple people as officers arrived.
“I made contact with the defendant who appeared to be intoxicated as I could smell a heavy odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from her breath as well as red glossy eyes,” the officer said.
Palm Bay police then attempted to speak with Rand, but they were informed she has a hearing impairment.
Shortly after, Rand punched the officer in the chest with two closed fists. The officer then took her into custody.
“As the defendant was on the ground she immediately began spitting at officers, causing her spit to make contact on my uniform,” the Palm Bay officer said.
Rand also began kicking police officers in the groin.
One of the victims at the bar said Rand struck him several times with a closed fist and began “biting him under his right armpit.” Officers found a puncture wound in the man’s armpit.
Officers then spoke with Rand’s live-in girlfriend who advised she was punched, scratched, and bitten by her several times at the bar.
Rand was arrested and transported to the Brevard County Jail where she was charged with Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Officer, Battery Domestic Violence, Battery, and Aggravated Assault Disorderly Conduct.
DISCLAIMER: Arrests and mugshots were made public by complaint affidavits, arrest affidavits, and police reports. All persons arrested are innocent until proven guilty.
