23-year-old Gena Consuelo Cardoza was taken into custody for two counts of assault on an officer, domestic assault, vandalizing government property, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and public intoxication on June 9th. Late June 8th, the owner of Skull’s Rainbow Room called 911, advising them that Cardoza was highly intoxicated and fought with her boyfriend, Evan Sebastian Aleo. When security attempted to kick her out of the bar, she became aggressive and started hitting them. Security stated they witnessed her hitting Aleo and rolling around in the roadway, hindering traffic.

While officers spoke with security, they observed Cardoza being restrained by Aleo, who was trying to calm her down, while she was hitting him and pulling his hair, so they approached and detained her. Cardoza was lying on the ground, resisting, when officers tried arresting her. While being escorted to the patrol car, she attempted to trip the officers before kicking one in the leg. Cardoza pushed her feet against the patrol car as they placed her in the back, causing her to fall to the ground. After she was in the patrol car, she kicked the door and the window repeatedly, resulting in damage to the rear side panel door interior, and the wiring connecting the car was completely ripped out. As they waited for another officer to bring a hobble restraint, an officer opened the door to prevent Cardoza from kicking it, during which she managed to leave and bypass them. While trying to restrain her, she kicked and pinched another officer in the inner thigh until they were finally able to restrain her.
