The Manatee County Sheriff's Office said a deputy responded around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday in Bradenton to a report of a "female in the street kicking people in genitals and running around," the Bradenton Herald reported Friday.
Katina Collins, who matched the description of the suspect, walked away from the approaching deputy and allegedly spun around when he followed her and punched him in the face, knocking off his sunglasses.
The deputy was able to wrestle Collins to the ground and she allegedly tried to scratch his face while he put the handcuffs on her.
Collins was arrested on a charge of battery on an officer and taken to the Manatee County jail in lieu of $1,500 bond.
Police did not give a motive for Collins' alleged groin attacks.
