A pregnant teenager already arrested for an incident earlier Saturday was at the hospital being cleared for processing when she allegedly became violent with officers and was arrested a second time, Nassau County police said.
According to police, Sinaia Jackson, 18, of Uniondale was in police custody at undergoing a physical to make sure she could be processed for an earlier arrest when she began kicking and biting an officer assigned to her.
The officer suffered a laceration to his right hand and head trauma, police stated. A second officer was kicked in the chest as he gained control of the defendant. Police added that during arrest processing Jackson was found to be in possession of a Marijuana cigarette in her pocket.
Jackson is charged with Assault 2nd degree, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana, Harassment 2nd degree, and Resisting Arrest. She was arraigned Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
(Editor's Note: It was not immediately clear what the defendant was arrested for the first time.)
