A Florida woman is accused of biting her sister-in-law’s hand just hours after ringing in 2020 and then trying to pee on deputies who were arresting her, an arrest which led to the discovery that she allegedly ran over a man with her BMW months prior.
Serina Probus, 20, of Brooksville, was arrested just a half hour into 2020 after she allegedly drunkenly tried to leave her sister-in-law’s home in Holiday with that woman’s baby, the Tampa Bay Times reports. When the sister-in-law tried to prevent Probus from taking off with her baby, Probus allegedly bit her on the hand, a Pasco County Sheriff’s spokesperson told Oxygen.com.
As deputies were arresting Probus, they claim she cursed and spit at them, attempted to kick out a patrol car’s window, and even tried to urinate on them. She was booked on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge and a felony charge of battery on a law enforcement officer in connection with that incident.
While being booked, she was hit with an additional felony count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after investigators probed around and linked Probus to an incident from October.
On Oct. 10, both Probus and the alleged victim were hanging outside a Pasco County bar called The Basement, according to an arrest report obtained by Oxygen.com. The two "got into a verbal altercation" while Probus was allegedly "in the driver seat of her Black BMW SUV and the victim was speaking to her through the passenger window,” according to the report.
The alleged victim tried to flee and walked in front of the SUV while doing so, investigators claim Probus accelerated to 15 miles per hour to strike them.
"The victim stayed on the victim's hood of her car until she braked and he fell off hitting concrete,” the report reads. Then, Probus drove the alleged victim to the hospital where he was treated for chest pain and breathing issues, according to the report.
“Tell Det. Murphy I hit you with the car ima (sic) tell her you deserved it and I would do it all over again if I could,” she allegedly brazenly texted the victim after that, according to the report. Det. Murphy works for the Pasco Sheriff's Department.
Investigators claim Probus admitted to being at the bar's parking lot the night of the Oct. incident when interviewed, but said "she was high on cocaine" and doesn't remember what happened.
She appeared to be all smiles during her New Year’s Day mugshot, just like another woman in Oregon who was also all smiles on New Year’s Day as she was getting arrested for allegedly punching her boyfriend over her dog.
