CRESTVIEW — A woman who allegedly kicked a Crestview Police officer in the stomach and was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer has a Feb. 12 court date.

On Dec. 18 the officer was taking the 28-year-old Crestview woman to the Okaloosa County Jail on an unrelated battery charge.

Along the way, the officer wrote in the arrest report, the woman began trying to choke herself with the seatbelt.

The officer stopped to untangle her.

"... She appeared to calm down," he wrote. "At that point she kicked me in the stomach."
