BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton woman allegedly spit in the face of a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Deputy while she was being arrested for domestic abuse.
Christina Marie Johnson is now facing several charges, including simple assault, battery, weapon offense, and resist an officer.
From the PBSO police report: ” While investigating a domestic battery incident under PBS case #21-142585 I witnessed the following Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer incident. Deputy Sheriff A. Leal #30105 who is a sworn Law Enforcement Officer working for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office was on scene as my back up for the above mentioned case. The arrestee, CHRISTINA MARIE JOHNSON while in custody and being walked towards my patrol vehicle spat on Deputy Leal’s facial area.
Deputy Leal was holding her left arm while I was holding her right arm walking towards my marked unit. It should be noted that Christina was already in an erratic and belligerent behavior towards us due to the domestic battery arrest. I observed as Christina turned her head to the left, snorted as if she was accumulating spit into her mouth, and spat towards Deputy Leal’s direction.
I Then observed how Deputy Leal had to use his upper torso to dodge the spit. Despite Deputy
Leal’s reaction, part of Christina’s spit made contact with his facial area. After the spit, Christina told
Deputy Leal “f–k you” and put her head down. Sergeant M. Hoffmann, D/S J. Macklin and I are all
witnesses to Christina spitting at Deputy Leal. I do believe Christina maliciously aim her spit at Deputy
Christina was transported to West Boca Medical Center to be medically cleared in reference to the
domestic battery incident. Once medically cleared, Christina was then transported to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff’s Office for booking. Based on the facts and circumstances mentioned above, I do find enough probable cause to charge CHRISTINA MARIE JOHNSON with battery on a Law Enforcement Officer.”
Johnson, who lives on Sailfish Road in West Boca Raton, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Tuesday evening at 6:40 p.m. She was released just before 3 p.m. on Wednesday after posting $3,000 bond. A court date is pending.
