A Winter Garden woman was arrested on July 1, 2015 after pepper spraying an officer there to control a neighborhood fight.
Christina Aiken, 40, was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence.
An officer responded to a neighborhood to investigate a call about a fight. Officers arrived to a group of enraged residents screaming and hitting each other.
As more backup arrived, the people in the fight turned their anger on police and attacked them.
As one officer was pepper spraying a combatant, Aiken allegedly stepped up and yelled, “You ain’t the only one with pepper spray,” then unloaded the can on the officer.
The officer was out of it for a moment then arrested Aiken.
Witnesses said the fight began after somebody threw Gatorade in someone’s face.
The Winter Garden Police Department would not comment on the incident but local media sources report that the officer said the pepper spray caused him great pain.
