TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) – On Tuesday around 7:30 p.m. Toledo Police arrested a woman after receiving reports she was "acting crazy."
A man said his friend, Sara Granata, 21, "began to act crazy" when he first saw her, saying she tried to attack him with a knife. He then said Granata took off her shirt and began working out on the 5000 block of South Avenue in south Toledo. Another friend said he saw Granata beating on vehicles that were driving up and down the street.
A woman driving on the street said Granata opened her car door and tried to unbuckle her 2-year-old daughter from her car seat, but failed to do so.
When police arrived, they found Granata walking around topless in the middle of the street obstructing traffic flow. When the cruiser pulled up, Granata began beating the driver's side door.
Although an officer advised Granata to control herself, she began punching and smacking him. Since Granata was swinging her arms, the officer held her head and hair to put her on the ground and gain control. Granata's friend held her legs, as she continued to kick, so the officer could apply handcuffs. Even when she was getting into the patrol car, she continued attempts to kick the officers. Once inside the cruiser, she tried to kick out the windows.
Along the ride, Granata screamed obscenities and racial slurs, even admitting that she does marijuana and mushrooms. She also screamed "bath salts" several times.
The Toledo Fire Department was on scene to provide initial treatment to Sara. She was transported to a Toledo hospital and left in the care of the hospital staff.
The Toledo Police officer suffered an abrasion to his head, but refused medical treatment.
Granata faces charges of assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.
