Barefoot Woman Arrested for Jumping Up and Down on a Volkswagen Beetle
CARROLL GARDENS — A barefoot woman clad in a black dress was arrested for jumping up and down on the hood of a car in Carroll Gardens Sunday and spitting in the face of the police officer who tried to stop her, police said.
The 30-year-old woman was spotted jumping on the hood of a 2007 Volkswagen Beetle on July 13 about 6 a.m. at Fourth Place and Smith Street, police said. She allegedly caused more than $250 worth of damage.
The spectacle caused drivers passing by to stop and look while she destroyed the car, according to the criminal complaint. When officers arrived she yelled "f--k off" at them, according to the criminal complaint.
“I’m not getting off,” the woman, who was wearing a black dress, added, according to police.
When officers tried to restrain her, she refused to be handcuffed and swung her arms and then spit in an officer’s face, according to police and the criminal complaint.
She was arrested and charged with resisting arrest and harassment in the second degree, according to the criminal complaint.
The owner of the Beetle, which had Georgia license plates, has not yet come forward.
Other notable crimes in the 76th Precinct, according to police, include:
