Forsyth woman accused of spitting on officer



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — After reportedly getting caught littering, a woman apparently began spitting on the deputy transporting her to jail.

The 31-year-old woman was walking around her neighborhood July 11 when a neighbor saw and recorded her on camera littering dirty diapers and food trash on a driveway.

The neighbor told deputies he set up a camera to capture the incident because it was happening daily.

The woman was pushing a stroller with a 5-month-old in it while walking with her husband. The deputy asked her about the littering, and she said she didn’t know how the diapers got there. The deputy showed her a still image from the video, and she continued to deny it was her.

The deputy placed her under arrest for the incident and put her in his car for transport to jail. While driving, the deputy said the woman began spitting in the back seat, so he told her to stop, and if she didn’t, she would be charged.

When arriving at the jail, another deputy opened the door and she spit on him, too.

A spit mask was placed on the woman and she was charged with simple battery on a law enforcement officer and littering.
