A woman who deputies say threw food at employees and patrons of a Waffle House was arrested for assault and numerous other charges.
Deputies from the Larimer County Sheriff's office responded to the Waffle House at 3850 East Mulberry in Fort Collins just after 6 a.m. Monday. They were told the woman threw food, assaulted an employee and was refusing to leave.
The employee was not seriously injured.
Deputies contacted the suspect, Naomi Braginsky, 31, outside the restaurant. They handcuffed her, but when they tried place her in the backseat of a patrol car, she began violently kicking at the deputies.
Once inside the vehicle, they say she continued to kick at deputies and used her legs to prevent them from closing the door. One deputy was kicked in the throat and leg and another deputy was kicked in the stomach and leg. Neither was seriously injured.
Deputies used a Taser and were eventually able to get Braginsky in the vehicle.
An ambulance responded to the scene to evaluate Braginsky but she continued to kick the inside of the patrol vehicle’s door and window. Based on her violent behavior, she was transported to a hospital for evaluation.
Later the same day Fort Collins Police officers responded to the hospital after learning Braginsky had assaulted a hospital staff member.
She was booked into the Larimer County Jail for 2nd degree assault, 2nd degree assault on peace officer, resisting arrest, harassment and 3rd degree assault
