The officer tried to deescalate the situation, then Henderson threw a metal object at a group of people gathered nearby. As the officer approached, Henderson continued to scream and shout and, at one point, pointed to the officer and yelled “No, shut the [expletive] up before I stab your [expletive.]” She proceeded to push over a dumpster.

The officer tried to deescalate Henderson again and she ended up slapping and elbowing him in the face. She then turned toward the officer and spat in his mouth, on his cheeks and neck.
