Two women arrested for spitting on people amid COVID-19 outbreak

As people the world over take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, two women were recently arrested after allegedly spitting on people, one of whom was a Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputy.

According to authorities, the incident involving the deputy occurred outside of Poulsbo when Rosemary Cruz allegedly made threats to stab her boyfriend. After refusing to cooperate with law enforcement and the mention of a knife being in Cruz’s bag that she was carrying, deputies attempted to apprehend her and brought her over to the patrol vehicle, documents read. When being read her Miranda rights, Cruz allegedly spat in the face of one of the deputies, according to a statement of probable cause.

Deputies then applied a hood to prevent further spitting along with a helmet and leg restraints. Eventually, Cruz was able to get loose from the restraints, court documents say. After law enforcement finally secured Cruz, she was booked into the Kitsap County Jail for third-degree assault with a bail of $5,000.

The other incident occurred at a brewery in Bremerton when the suspect, Cazzee L. Bunnell, was allegedly assaulting three employees by spitting on them and kicking them, according to documents. When officers from the Bremerton Police Department arrived on the scene, employees were restraining Bunnell in the kitchen and pinning her to the ground. Officers secured her in hand restraints while she continued trying to resist arrest by spitting and kicking until she was placed in the patrol vehicle with hand and leg restraints, along with a spit hood.

Employees of the breweries advised officers that Bunnell had been told to leave several times but ignored them and eventually made entry into the kitchen, which is not open to the public. Bunnell was booked into Kitsap County Jail for second-degree burglary, third-degree assault and fourth-degree assault.
