Cape Coral woman arrested for throwing rocks at police
A woman was arrested for fighting police Tuesday after calling 911.
Around 6:47 p.m., Cape Coral Police responded to a call for service at the 500 block of Cape Coral Pkwy E in reference to a report of an individual requesting an ambulance.
The caller did not provide much more detail and was later identified as Jessica C. Blick, 37.
Blick was found near the Family Dollar walking along sidewalk carrying a large piece of concrete and a cellphone.
Police tried to talk to her to see if she was the one who had called 9-1-1. As the officer spoke to Blick she continued to move around and did not answer the officer. Concerned for Blick’s welfare the officer continued to try to communicate and directed her numerous times to drop the “rock,” police said.
Blick continued to disregard the officer and was able to see another officer approaching her from behind. Blick then drew back the piece of concrete like she was going to throw it at the first officer while saying that she was going to kill him, police said.
The first officer ducked away and Blick ran into the road. The first officer drew his TASER and discharged both cartridges in an attempt to gain control but the probes missed Blick.
She went back onto the sidewalk and drew back the piece of concrete again but this time actually threw it at the second officer. The piece of concrete struck the second officer in the shoulder. That officer ran toward Blick and was able to force her to the ground and into some nearby bushes, according to police.
Blick continued to resist officers by pulling and twisting away from them. Eventually, officers were able to subdue Blick and secure her in handcuffs, they said.
After Blick was secured in handcuffs, she rolled over and kicked the original officer in the thigh and groin. Blick continued to kick at the officer to which the other officer utilized his O.C. spray. After the spray was used Blick’s aggression stopped almost immediately, police said.
Blick was transported to a local hospital by request of officers and then arrested for aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer, battery of an officer, and resisting arrest with violence.
