A woman arrested Sunday after she allegedly caused a disturbance at a Boca Raton night club got herself in further trouble in a holding cell when she kicked an officer in the chest, then struck him above the eye with the metal underwire from her bra, according to an arrest report.
Julia Epshteyn, from Huntingdon Valley, Pa., is facing charges of battery on an officer and trespassing and was released from the Palm Beach County Jail after posting a $5,000 bond.
Boca Baton police officers were called by security staff at the Blue Martini Lounge on 6000 Glades Road, at the Town Center at Boca Raton mall, who reported that Epshteyn was causing a disturbance. Officers found Epshteyn “extremely intoxicated,” the report said.
Epshteyn was ordered to leave the premises, but refused while saying she wanted a lawyer to respond, the report said. Epshteyn, 47, was then arrested.
During a 15-minute observation period at Boca Raton’s booking facility, Epshteyn was seen trying to stick something into her left forearm, the report said.
When an officer intervened, Epshteyn allegedly kicked him in the chest, then struck him above the left eye with the object, the underwire of her bra.
