Woman Abandoned Child And Fought Officers

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police have booked a woman they say abandoned her child and fought officers as they arrested her.

Multiple news outlets report Daytona Beach police arrested 34-year-old Jennifer Cael Thursday on charges including child neglect and resisting an officer with violence.

According to a charging affidavit, Cael left her child with strangers Thursday night at a lobby of an apartment complex.

Police later found Cael intoxicated and naked inside an apartment. Police say she approached officers and punched one in the chest. They say she also urinated on them when they tried placing her in handcuffs.

She was being held at Volusia County Branch Jail. It’s unclear if she has an attorney.
