The Third Squad reports the arrest of a female from West Hempstead for Assaulting a Nassau County Police Officer that occurred on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at 11:30 PM in East Garden City.
According to Detectives, Third Precinct Officers were dispatched for a disturbance that occurred on Oak Street. Upon their arrival, Officers found a damaged black 2002 Mercedes Benz that had hit the median barrier. The driver, defendant Charmaine Grant, 22 of 7 Ronkonkoma Avenue, was informed that the vehicle was inoperable and would need to be towed. As Officers gathered the information of the vehicle, they discovered that neither the license plate or the registration belonged to the vehicle. When defendant Grant was asked to provide any documentation proving ownership of the vehicle, she became verbally aggressive and refused. Officers placed defendant Grant under arrest and placed her in the back of a Police vehicle. As a female Officer went to sit in the back next to defendant Grant, she turned her legs toward the Officer and began to kick her in the abdomen, chest, hip arm and legs causing substantial pain. Officers physically removed defendant Grant from the Police vehicle and placed her on a stretcher. Defendant Grant continued to kick and spit on Officers as they secured her to the stretcher and was transported by Nassau County Police Ambulance to a nearby hospital for assessment. The female Officer suffered chest pain and was also transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Defendant Charmaine Grant is charged with Assault 2nd degree, Operating a Motor Vehicle Unlicensed, Resisting Arrest and Obstructing Governmental Administration 2nd degree. She will be arraigned on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 in Mineola.
