A woman is facing a host of charges after she kicked an officer in the head.

24-year-old Caitlyn Worthen of Okaloosa County, Florida, is accused of kicking the officer in the head while being arrested.

Police officers were called by a witness, who reported that Worthen was arguing with her ​​boyfriend and she was throwing trash at a store window, according to the arrest report.

The officers tried to calm her and asked Worthen to tell them what was going on while they walked towards the patrol vehicle.

Worthen responded by using profanity and ignored the officers. One officer then grabbed Worthen by the shoulder. She turned around, and punched the officer in the chest and cheek.

She continued to fight until the officers handcuffed her. Once she was restrained, the officer took her to their patrol vehicle.

While officers tried to get her into the vehicle, Worthen began to kick. During the struggle, Worthen allegedly kicked with enough force that the officer’s glasses were knocked off his face.

Worthen is charged with battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and resisting arrest without violence.
