Woman arrested for battery on officers who were trying to arrest her son


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Shandra Isabel Richardson, 36, was arrested yesterday evening and charged with felony battery on a law enforcement officer after allegedly attacking officers who were trying to arrest her son.

A report from Gainesville Police Department states that officers made contact with Richardson and let her know that her son was a suspect in a crime that had been committed several days ago. Officers then reportedly tried to take her son into custody, but Richardson allegedly pushed her shoulder into an officer’s chest; she then allegedly pushed between two officers, and when an officer tried to put her arm behind her back, she allegedly pulled away. Nobody was injured.

The officer who took Richardson to the jail reported that when they arrived, she refused to get out of the patrol car until she heard him requesting additional units; she then decided to comply and walked into the jail.

Richardson has two misdemeanor convictions, one for resisting arrest and one for retail theft. Richardson has been released from the jail; bail information is not available on weekends.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • Until people are held accountable for interfering with arrests or attacking police officers, society will treat officers like trash. No bond and already out of jail? Unbelievable.

    • Until Cops regain the confidence of ALL citizens, mothers will continue to put themselves in harms way for their children. Cop hurt one of mine,,, well Hannibals Law.

  • That’s actually a smart move by the judge. In a small town, she’s forever marked as trouble maker amongst law enforcement. She’ll locked up for even breathing the wrong way from now on.

    • Many thanks to the Black Lives Matter mentality dropped on the black community. Just like the far left dogma, if you’re not with us then you’re against us.

  • To be her age and have only two misdemeanors shows she’s not a career criminal. I’m not a mind reader but my best guess is based on her reaction She probably believes her son is innocent of the charge. This doesn’t excuse her actions.

  • Strangely, there’s no mention of the father… Oh, wait!! I forgot, no father to be seen.

  • The whole absent father thing is just more b.s. You still have choices in this world regardless of WHO raised you. I never had very much to do with my father until after I was an adult and you don’t see me in these booking reports. You’re still an individual and you still have control over how you conduct yourself.
