Suspect Allegedly Slapped; Spat on the Face of a Police Officer

A Racine woman allegedly slapped and elbowed a police officer in the face on Sunday and spat on him multiple times.

McKayla Henderson, 19, of the 1000 block of Center Street, was charged with battery to a law enforcement officer, throwing or discharging bodily fluids at public safety worker, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct.

According to a criminal complaint: At around 4:30 PM on Sunday, an officer was dispatched to the 1000 block of Center St. The officer found Henderson screaming and using profanities.

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.
