Bradenton Herald

A Southwest Florida woman accused of kicking people's genitals has been charged with battery on a law enforcement officer after punching him in the face, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

The deputy responded about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday to a dispatch call of a "female in the street kicking people in genitals and running around," according to a police report.

Katina Collins, who matched the description of the woman, walked away from the deputy who asked her to stop. The foot pursuit ended with Collins allegedly turning and punching the deputy, causing his sunglasses to fall off, according to the sheriff's office.

The deputy was able to get Collins on the ground. She allegedly attempted to scratch the deputy while he handcuffed her, the report said.

Collins, charged with battery on an officer, is being held at the Manatee County jail on a $1,500 bond.
