The officer did speak with her and she said she was upset with her husband because he is “with another (profanity).” When the officer asked her if she would calm down so he could take her handcuffs off, she allegedly responded that she “would go crazy.”

The handcuffs were locked in front of her, but the officers decided to lock them behind her for their safety. While doing this, Ramirez allegedly kicked backward toward another officer who was assisting. He blocked the blow with his hand and officer were then able to get her under control.
