Georgia Woman Facing Felony Charges For Allegedly Assaulting Carroll Police
A Georgia woman is facing felony charges in Carroll County District Court for the alleged pepper-spraying of two Carroll police officers during a routine traffic stop.
Authorities say the officers made the stop on a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu and 36-year-old Nakeisha Naomi White of Jesup, Ga., at around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of East Street and U.S. Highway 30. They attempted to take White into custody for driving without a valid driver’s license. She instead resisted arrest by spraying both officers with pepper spray and biting one of them on the hand hard enough to require medical attention, according to reports. Police booked White into the Carroll County jail on two counts of assault on a peace officer with intent to injure and interference with official acts using a dangerous weapon. Those are all class D felonies with a combined maximum penalty of up to 15 years in prison and $22,500 in fines.
