SPARTANBURG, S.C. (CBS Charlotte) – South Carolina authorities say a woman who claims she has AIDS bit a police officer while she was being arrested.
Denean Latrice Robbs, 32, was arrested Christmas night for allegedly refusing to stop screaming profanities, eventually leading to Robbs biting a police officer after she was in custody.
Spartanburg police found Robbs cursing loudly at other people at her home Saturday night, according to the police report. When police ordered Robbs to stop yelling profanities, she ignored them, even hitting an officer in the head as she slammed a door. This forced police to wrestle Robbs to the ground, handcuffing her before she was removed from the home. Police said that Robbs resisted arrest and continued to swear as they placed her in the patrol car.
Then, Robbs would somehow bite the hand of one of the deputies.
“I have AIDS and now so do you,” she said, according to the police report.
Robbs’ resistance would continue as she was transported to her holding cell, police saying they needed assistance from detention center personnel to place her in the cell.
She has been charged with public disorderly conduct and resisting arrest with assault. Robbs was held on a total bond of $6,262.50. She was released from Spartanburg County Detention Center yesterday, according to jail records.
