A woman from Citrus County, Florida has been arrested after crashing her car with her two-year-old son on board and subsequently resisting arrest.
Brianna Dee Knox, 28, was taken into custody by the Florida Highway Patrol after driving recklessly and crashing into four cars on I-4 at roughly 5 PM on January 9.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that, after the crash, Knox’s red 2001 Honda broke down under an overpass. Upon exiting the vehicle, Knox started acting “erratically and disturbed”, even letting her young son walk towards traffic while she relieved herself on the side of the road.
The Miami Herald reports that when troopers David Flores and Alain Hernandez arrived on the scene, Knox resisted arrest, kicked one of the officer’s in the chest and hand and violently struggled as they handcuffed her.
Knox was arrested on charges including driving under the influence, battery on a law enforcement officer, leaving the scene of a crash and child neglect. She is being held at the Hills borough County jail on $15,000 bail.
