Gainesville, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Adoniyah Israel and Donna Sweet, a 19-year-old Ocala couple was jailed Sunday after they were allegedly found brawling in a street while high on LSD... all while their baby lay in intensive care at a local hospital.
According to Gainesville police, officers were called to the scene of a street fight in progress at about 10:00 p.m. By the time deputies arrived, a crowd had gathered, and witnesses stated that Israel and Sweet were involved in a heated brawl.
As officers approached, the couple was screaming as Israel waved his fists in the air. When police attempted to calm the couple down, Sweet ran up to an officer and attempted to push him down. The officer responded by taking Sweet to the ground.
Investigators say Israel then approached them aggressively, forcing officers to point a Taser at him until they could place him into custody. As an officer was taking Israel into custody, Sweet broke free, grabbed the officer's neck, and attempted to pull him away from Israel.
Sweet told detectives that she and Israel had been using LSD and drinking alcohol.
The couple went on to tell police that their infant was in the neo-natal intensive care unit at Shands Childrens Hospital, and they were stressed about the situation.
Israel and Sweet were booked into the Alachua County jail and charged with brawling and resisting arrest with violence.
The Department of Children and Families was notified about the baby.
