FCSO Deputies Show Tremendous Restraint during Intense Response to Woman Attempting ‘Suicide by Cop’
Melanie Botts was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Domestic Violence, Resisting Arrest without Violence, and Violation of Probation. Even after being placed under arrest, Botts continued to berate the deputies on scene. While in the patrol vehicle, Botts intentionally slammed her head on the vehicle partition causing a laceration to her forehead.
“The School Resource Deputies provide our students and our schools with a safe and secure learning environment,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “The FPC Bulldog Patrol had suggested having a K-9 visit the school occasionally. Instead, they now have a full-time K-9. Adding K-9 Jax to the team will only enhance our ability to keep our schools safe. We are excited for this new team and hope that besides adding protection, he will also add happiness to everyone he encounters.”
While most residents were celebrating Father’s Day with family and friends, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) was responding to multiple Domestic Violence related calls. Two of the more violent incidents took place on Sunday evening.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) wants to congratulate Deputy Steve Williams on being elected as the Vice President for the Florida Agricultural Crimes Intelligence Unit (FACIU).
“This is a great example of why the Domestic Violence ankle monitors are necessary and how they protect victims,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “This guy was arrested, told exactly what the conditions of his release were, and still went back to the home anyway. Thanks to this technology, he is being held accountable. He is back in jail and the victim is not in danger.”
