EUSTIS, Fla. – A Florida woman posted on Facebook offering $100 to have someone attack the officer who spoke to her son for less than six minutes, according to Eustis Police Department officials.
Hildagarde Simmons, 50, posted on her Facebook page begging and offering someone $100 to attack the officer who spoke to her son shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday, officials said.
Simmons went to the police department at 11 a.m. to speak with someone about her son's encounter with the officer. The affidavit said Simmons was hostile while speaking with a communications officer and demanded the name of the officer who spoke to her son.
Officials said Simmons made the post shortly after leaving the department. The report said the officer made contact with her son and another individual for less than six minutes and were described as "calm and cooperative."
Officers received screenshots of the posts, which included the officer's name and vehicle number on her Facebook page, which has more than 800 followers.
