BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton man told several Boca Raton Police Officers to both suck and eat a certain body part moments before he was arrested on Monday. The eating and sucking were not to be simultaneous. One Officer was allegedly invited to suck, while another was invited to eat.
Austin Smith, 22, of the 1100 block of West Camino Real was later jailed. The incident started as a domestic dispute when Smith allegedly held a knife to his throat after smashing a bottle of alcohol in his home and attempting to strangle an acquaintance. The following is a selection from the lengthy arrest report filed by Boca Raton Police, and reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com.
I observed a light skinned male, later identified by his Florida drivers license as W/M Austin Smith, with a Florida/gun tattoo on his stomach standing in the front driveway. After walking towards Smith on the sidewalk, Smith began to shout “What the f–k ya’ll niggas calling me for?!” Ofc. De La Rua replied and said “Because somebody called us.” Smith then began to walk toward us in an angry manner and pointed at me and said “F–k you,” then pointed at Ofc. De La Rua and said “Suck my d-ck” and then pointed at Ofc. Price and said “Eat my d-ck.” Smith continued to walk toward Ofc. Price within five feet in an angry manner, at which point I drew my department-issued taser and placed the red dot on Smith’s stomach area. Smith began to walk backward. Due to Smith being hostile towards law enforcement, Ofc. Price attempted to grab Smith, but Smith kept walking backward.
Ofc. Price was able to grab Smith’s left wrist, but Smith was still hostile, resisting, and walked up to the front porch of the home. I continued to place my taser on Smith’s stomach area and Ofc. De La Rua was able to grab Smith’s right wrist. Smith continued to resist and yell, at which point I holstered my taser and assisted Ofc. Price in grabbing Smith’s left wrist, while he pulled his handcuffs out to place on Smith. It should be noted after getting close to smith, I was able to smell an odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage emanating from Smith. Smith then looked at me and said “You a bitch ass police nigga. After Ofc. Price was able to secure Smith in handcuffs, Smith threatened me and said “Nigga I will kill you and your whole f-ing family and you’ll be dead.”
Ofc. Price then was able to hold Smith by his left arm and attempted to assist Smith with sitting in the chair that was on the front porch. Smith refused to sit down and continued to be hostile with officers. Ofc. Price then grabbed Smith and had to forcefully place Smith in the chair. In doing so, Smith was still resisting and I went to assist Ofc. Price with holding Smith so that he would not continue to resist. Smith then kicked me multiple times in my legs. A struggle then ensued between Smith, Ofc. Price, Ofc. De La Rua and I so that Smith would not continue to batter me. At this time, I stated loudly to Smith that he was under arrest. Ofc. Price, Ofc. De La Rua and I then forced Smith to the ground so that he would not continue to fight officers.
Austin Smith was charged with battery by strangulation, battery on an officer, resisting an officer with violence, and threatening public servant or family. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Monday morning at 6:07 a.m. and remains held on $9,000 bond.
