Police officer loses eye after woman kicks him

Pima County Sheriff’s Deputy Cody Gress said that officers arrested Yesennia Gonzalez, 28, for DUI and placed her into handcuffs. Gress said as she was being placed into the patrol car, she began kicking those around her and kicked the heel of her boot into Traffic Unit Sergeant Mark Bustamante’s left eye.

According to Fox 10 Phoenix, Bustamante was transported to a local hospital and doctors attempted to surgically repair his eye, but were unable to repair the damage that was done.

Gonzalez, of Tucson, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, one county of resisting arrest and one count of DUI. She’s being held on a $300,000 bond.

The officer will receive a prosthetic eye.
