According to the arrest report from the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, on Wednesday, at about 8:30 p.m., Shannon walked in on her boyfriend having sex with her girlfriend, named only as "Antoinette" in the report.
Naturally, Shannon was upset and started arguing with Antoinette. Then she began striking Antoinette about the head and face. She also pulled Antoinette's hair, causing it to come out in clumps, the report said.
Shannon then broke a window in the bedroom.
This all took place in Antoinette's home, located in the 5800 block of 12th Street East, Bradenton.
Imagine that, Shannon goes to see her girlfriend and -- surprise, surprise, surprise -- there's her boyfriend in her girlfriend's home...having sex.
Well, anyway, Shannon then fled in her car.
She was found a short time later by a deputy still driving her vehicle. When she was stopped and arrested, Shannon became combative on scene, which was controlled with leg shackles.
While at a sheriff's substation, Shannon was still combative and was banging her head against the wall. A deputy went over to get her to stop and she kicked his right leg.
Shannon was arrested and charged with Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Battery and Criminal Mischief. Oh, we almost forgot to mention...she was also charged with DUI.
She has since posted a bail bond of $2,370 and has been released from the Manatee County Jail.
