BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Sometimes being a cop can be a pain in the rear. As it turns out, being a cop in Boca can literally cause a pain in your rear. Case in point: a woman described as “agitated” and allegedly smelling of alcohol slammed a door on a Boca Raton Police Officer’s backside — hard — and was promptly arrested for “battery on a law enforcement officer.”

According to a police report obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, Officer Jason Cohen was standing by while a woman collected her belongings from the residence she shared with a  roommate when the roommate, Eliane Marie Giarelli, became “extremely agitated.”

It happened in the 100 block of NW 2nd Avenue.

“Giarelli came in yelling and screaming at both (the woman) and us (the police). She screamed repeatedly “You brought these f—ing cops to my house!” Giarelli continued with her rant while walking around the apartment and throwing (the woman’s) belongings out the door. Giarelli continued to scream, “F—ing cops!” One one occasion Giarelli neared me, I could smell a strong odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from her person.”

The police report continues:

“As (we) exited the residence, Giarelli proceeded to violently slam the door as I exited, striking, but not injuring, my backside. I was clearly in the process of exiting the doorway and the force with which Giarelli slammed the door was clearly an intentional act. I turned around, knocked on the door, and Giarelli answered. Before I could tell her what she had done, Giarelli, in a stance that I felt to be very aggressive, got very close to me and put her right pointer finger just inches from my face. She was shaking it aggressively and began to scream at me. I believed that she was about to strike or push me at that point. I responded by placing her in handcuffs, advising that she was under arrest for assault and battery upon me.”

Giarelli, 25,  was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on one count of battery on a law enforcement officer and another on simple assault on a law enforcement officer. She was released on $3,000 bond.

Officer Cohen’s rear end is, we surmise by the police report, feeling much better.
