A swimming pool day turned sour when an alcoholic lady allegedly attacked a 10-year-old boy and bit a cop who was detaining her.

The woman, identified as Philadelphia resident Fallan Turner, attacked the youngster at a motel in Wildwood Crest, New Jersey, on June 17, according to a news release from the Wildwood Crest Police Department.

Officers arrived to the resort, which was named as the Waikiki Oceanfront Inn by Philadelphia’s 6 ABC, when witnesses reported Turner, 43, having an incident with a child near the pool.

Witnesses reported her as “highly intoxicated” and “out of control,” according to officials. Another witness allegedly informed police Turner had been drinking tequila all day, according to 6 ABC.

Turner allegedly “grabbed an unrelated 10-year-old juvenile male, and swung him around in the pool, dunking him underwater,” according to police. When the 10-year-old’s father attempted to interfere, Turner allegedly “jumped on his back and grabbed him inappropriately.” When authorities sought to talk with Turner, they stated she “became belligerent” and was arrested, which she resisted.

According to police, she “pushed the arresting officer in the face as she resisted his control” and remained “highly uncooperative and combative” during processing, biting an officer’s hand.

Police stated no cops were wounded during the altercation.

“When she was told that the people didn’t want her involved, she got upset,” Wildwood Crest Police Chief Robert Lloyd told 6 ABC. “She became extremely unruly and did some very inappropriate stuff.” Lloyd also told the publication that Wildwood Crest is typically a family-friendly environment, but the department has noticed an increase in cases like Turner’s since the COVID-19 outbreak.

“It’s unfortunate,” he explained. “You’re not only ruining your own vacation when you have contacts with the police, but you’re also ruining the vacation of others who are just trying to have fun.”

The Waikiki Oceanfront Inn did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

According to police, Turner was charged with third-degree endangering the welfare of children, two counts of third-degree aggravated assault on law enforcement, third-degree resisting arrest with force, fourth-degree criminal sexual contact, two counts of harassment, disorderly conduct, and failure to allow fingerprinting.

Jail papers show that she also declined to have her blood drawn for the police’s DNA database.

Turner is now being imprisoned in the Cape May County Correctional Facility. It is unknown whether she has legal representation who can comment on her behalf.
