An Augusta teen being arrested for underage drinking early Sunday ended up with more serious charges after punching a sheriff’s official and threatening to kill the female employee once released from jail, a report says.
Shynice Cannida, 17, is now facing charges of felony obstruction of an officer, terroristic threats & acts and purchase of possession of alcohol by a minor.
A female officer was escorting the fiesty teenager to a cell on the alcohol charge when Cannida starting walking towards the exit. The sheriff’s employee tried to stop the girl when she struck the officer in the face with a closed fist, a report says.
After a scuffle, Cannida told the officer that when she got out of jail, “she was going to kill her,” according to a report.
That was enough to charge her single misdemeanor charge two two felonies and no bond.
Cannida has been a hectic to officers ever since she turned 17, getting arrested three times for disorderly conduct, a magistrate’s court bench warrant and the alcohol offense.
