“Every day deputies face unexpected dangers on the job while serving and protecting our great community,” Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said. “If you harm a deputy, you will be arrested and you will be held accountable. I will not tolerate violence against our deputies.”

At around midnight, Collier County deputies clocked Franklin doing 71 mph in a posted 50 mph zone on Immokalee Road near Twin Eagles Boulevard. Deputies stated she was driving so fast she slammed on the brakes when she passed a deputy’s patrol car.

When deputies ran her driver’s license through teletype, they were informed that it was suspended. Teletype also advised Franklin had an active warrant for her arrest for non-payment of child support.

Pro tip folks: don’t drive 21 mph over the limit when you don’t have a license and you have an active warrant. Better yet, don’t drive on a suspended license and pay your child support.

Deputies advised Franklin they were placing her under arrest on the warrant and ordered her out of her vehicle, and the fight was on. Franklin resisted deputies’ attempts to take her into custody and tried to escape. During the resisting, Franklin bit one of the deputies on her ring finger, breaking the skin and drawing blood.

After securing Franklin in their patrol vehicle, deputies conducted an inventory search prior to the vehicle being towed and found a firearm inside her purse that was within her reach in her vehicle. Franklin is not licensed to carry a firearm.
