BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Brenda Bleu Haggerty, 50, of NW 13th Court is in the Palm Beach County Jail today after allegedly assaulting a rescue worker. We are awaiting the arrest report with details from Palm Beach County officials, but can report that Haggerty is charged with 7 counts of battery on an “officer, firefighter or EMT” and two counts of simple assault on an “officer, firefighter or EMT.”

We’ve learned after reviewing her arrest report that Haggerty allegedly assaulted several people on a PalmTrans bus, including the bus driver, an ambulance medic, and a police officer.

Haggerty was taken into custody late last night. She is being held on $18,000 bond for the battery charges. No bond was set for the simple assault charges.
