Shakeela McNair, 30 (pictured at right), of Vandivere Road, Augusta, was charged early Saturday with simple battery against a police officer.

Cpl. James Ouzts (pictured at right, in uniform) was working special duty at the Gordon Highway business at 1:55 a.m. Saturday when he saw McNair and another woman involved in an argument.

“At that time, McNair threw a full cup of ice and an unknown type of alcohol drink,” the officer wrote in his report. “The cup, ice and liquid struck me on the left side of my head and face, drenching me in the liquid.”

Cpl. Ouzts reacted by taking McNair into custody, handcuffing her and taking her to jail for simple battery on a police officer.
