New Jersey: Woman Assaults & Threatens Police Officer During Traffic Stop Arrest
"You're gonna go to prison!"
That's what New Jersey driver Robert Rokicki had to say as he filmed 21-year-old Francesca Minickene slapping, hitting and kicking an Old Bridge police officer for at least three minutes in a terrifying display of the spoiled attitude plaguing today's youth:
Initially, Minickene was stopped by Officer Ronia Walrond for speeding. Upon investigation, Officer Walrond discovered that Minickene's license was both expired and suspended.
Officer Walrond advised Minickene she was under arrest and ordered her out of her vehicle. Upon hearing this, Minickene reacts like a toddler throwing a tantrum, screaming at the female cop "You not arresting me for no reason!!"
"I told you why I'm arresting you!" Officer Walrond can be heard responding.
Unsatisfied, Minickene stands up, screams unintelligibly — and then strikes Officer Walrond several times in the face.
A scuffle ensues as both females exchange blows. As Officer Walrond struggles against the much-larger Minickene, her radio can be seen dragging along the ground out of arm's reach.
Minickene returns to the driver's seat, declares "I'm not f-cking getting out" several times and then has the nerve to yell out to a passing van "Please! She's beating me up!"
Officer Walrond eventually regains control of her radio, calling out "I'm being assaulted over here!"
From the Holmdel Patch:
Situations like these are incredibly dangerous for everyone involved. Officer Walrond showed remarkable restraint, almost to a fault, by not choosing to transition to higher levels of force, i.e. her baton. In a close quarters situation like this one, Minickene (who appears to be more grizzly bear than female) could've easily tried to take Officer Walrond's firearm.
Eventually, eight backup officer arrive and take Minickene to the ground, where she is finally cuffed, still screaming.
Officer Walrond sustained bruising to her face. Minickene was charged with careless driving, driving while suspended and having an expired license. She was also charged with assault on a police officer, making terroristic threats, obstruction of the law and resisting arrest.
It's sad but very likely that Minickene will go away thinking she was a blameless victim in this whole affair. Thanks to the steady stream of anti-police rhetoric spread by leftist media outlets, young adults like Minickene believe it's okay to resist arrest and call the shots during a police encounter. She's lucky she wasn't hurt worse. Only time will tell if she's learned her lesson.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
