Busted Christmas

DECEMBER 14--Christmas got busted.

A 44-year-old Florida woman named Merry Christmas was arrested by Boynton Beach police yesterday and charged with resisting arrest without violence. According to this report, Officer Alex Lindsey was interviewing a woman last evening while investigating a disturbance when Christmas began yelling at another woman "so loud that it caused the female I was interviewing to start screaming."

After refusing the officer's request to stop and leave the area, Christmas was arrested using a "bent arm takedown." She was then cuffed and taken to the police station for processing, but was released without having to pose for a mug shot. (2 pages)
