Mom Punches Cop
January 13, 2015 permalink
When Florida police and DCF investigators removed a baby from mother Chinwe Onyiuke she punched the cop.
Note. The police slam the mother noting that she has outstanding warrants. In American jurisprudence this does not mean she has committed multiple serious offenses. It almost always means she has a number of unpaid fines.
West Palm Police: Woman punched officer as baby removed by DCF
A woman who was having her 2-year-old boy removed by investigators with the Department of Children and Families was arrested Friday after she allegedly punched a West Palm Beach police officer.
Chinwe Onyiuke is facing charges of battery on an officer and resisting an officer with violence. Onyiuke, 36, remains in the Palm Beach County Jail where she is being held in lieu of $6,000 bail.
Police were called to the Days Inn at 2300 45th Street where they met with DCF investigators. Two officers and three investigators went to a room being rented by Onyiuke and an adult male.
“Onyiuke was verbally abusive from the initial contact,” according to an arrest report.
When Onyiuke, who had outstanding warrants in Miami-Dade County, was told the child was being removed, she got up from a chair and walked toward the baby.
Given her “demeanor,” the officer decided it was best for Onyiuke not to have contact with the child. He grabbed the woman’s hand and instructed she was being arrested for the warrants. After submitting to having her right wrist handcuffed, Onyiuke allegedly struck the second officer on the right side of this face with her left hand.
Onyiuke tried to hit the officer a second time, according to the report, and was taken to the ground. When she continued to resist and attempted to bite the officer, he responded by punching her in the head.
“I am done,” Onyiuke said, according to the report.
