Separate incidents land women in jail

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Wendy Brooks
Two Brazil women have recently "gone wild" in separate altercations with the Brazil City Police Department.

Shortly before 1 a.m., Tuesday, two BCPD units were dispatched to an "active civil dispute" near 630 North Columbia Street involving four individuals.

According to Police Chief Larry Pierce, while officers were trying to determine what was going on, Wendy Brooks, 31, approached them in a highly agitated state, allegedly screaming she was on Methamphetamine.

When officers attempted to detain Brooks for her own safety, she fought back.

Once in custody, Brooks began kicking Patrolman Jeremy Mace while she was being put in a patrol car. Mace put Brooks on the ground and informed her she would stay there until she stopped kicking.

When she did, Mace helped the woman sit up, but she allegedly "got out of control" and started kicking and screaming again.

Brooks was transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital after officers finally got her in custody to be treated for minor injuries, blood alcohol testing and medically cleared for incarceration.

Although she was released from the hospital, Brooks began to bang her head into a brick wall at the Clay County Justice Center. Pierce confirmed to The Brazil Times Brooks was placed in a padded cell for her own safety.

A preliminary result of the blood alcohol testing confirmed Brooks' BAC level was .08.

Brooks, 31, was preliminarily charged with resisting law enforcement, public intoxication, battery with injury on law enforcement, battery, escape and criminal mischief.

Brooks posted 10 percent of her $5,000 cash bond and was released Tuesday to await formal court proceedings in the matter.

Officer Mace reported no injuries during the incident, while none were reported for the other three unidentified individuals involved in the civil dispute.

Meanwhile, on Friday, Jullissa Merlyn Andina, 27, Honduras, was arrested after a physical dispute with a co-worker at a local restaurant.

According to Pierce, two BCPD units were dispatched to Double M Dinner, 1421 East National Avenue, shortly before 2 p.m., Friday.

Jullissa Merlyn Andina
During the investigation, two unidentified witnesses involved in the incident reported Andina threw a pan of hot grease, brandished a kitchen knife and threatened to kill a co-worker over a dispute with a food order.

Taken into custody and preliminarily booked on charges of intimidation with a deadly weapon and battery with a bodily injury, Andina was assigned a cash bond of $10,000. Andina was allowed to bond out after paying 10 percent ($1,000) later Friday evening because she provided a Brazil address as her home, which was the same as the restaurant.

Officials confirm Andina remains out on bond awaiting further court proceedings in the matter.

The Clay County Prosecutor's Office is reviewing both case files, which could potentially lead to further charges being filed against both women.

I suppose if some people use a county jail address as their own, a restaurant would work.

The first story will teach others to always watch out for the crazies. The article above states that she was "OUT OF CONTROL" Please, how crazy are people these days! And the people that mind to themselves always fall victim to the someone else's problem. I feel for anyone who has to deal with things like this in their own back yard.

WOW....most generally meth users dont admit to using it but a very forward gesture even though it was never mentioned in the blood test results that she was even using the drug...really thats hiliarious...but yet not so surprizing..i have known this girl for years she was always a little of the rocker

When did it become OK to release someone on bond with no known address...just a little information there was a test ran on some of the food served at a local resturant that serves ethnic food and it tested positive for human urine...so who knows what your fish taste was...but guess thats not front page material either!

we went to the double m for fish 2 or3 times a month. we had stopped going there before it changed hands. the food was awful. we tried after they changed hands found that the food was always good. started eating there often. we are new here so we never hear local going on with local businesses. sure has stopped us cold for return visit. hubby reminded me we had gotten take out and i got sick thinking it was flu. i guess it could have been food poisoning.

Ang 65,

Where's the Clarkes place? Was there any truth to the talk about him buying the local Hardees a few years back?

Keep changing your name, YNGPUP and we'll keep reporting your ignorance. A leopard doesn't change his spots .. and you show your lack of intelligence every time you 'open your mouth' (or type).
