(December 12, 2018)- On December 11, 2018 around 6:47 PM, Cape Coral Police responded to a call for service at the 500 block of Cape Coral Pkwy E in reference to a report of an individual requesting an ambulance.
The individual called into 9-1-1 but did not provide much more detail. The 9-1-1 caller was later identified as Jessica C. Blick (W/F, DOB: 08/01/1981, 3518 SE 17th Ave). Blick was eventually determined to be at 340 Cape Coral Parkway E (Family Dollar) walking on the sidewalk with a large piece of concrete in one of her hands and the other holding a cellular telephone.
The first officer on scene made contact with Blick trying to talk to her to determine if she was the one who had called 9-1-1. As the officer spoke to Blick she continued to move around and did not answer the officer. Concerned for Blick’s welfare the officer continued to try to communicate and directed her numerous times to drop the “rock”. Blick continued to disregard the officer and was able to see another officer approaching her from behind. Blick then drew back the piece of concrete like she was going to throw it at the first officer while saying that she was going to kill him.
The first officer ducked away as the second officer moved up and Blick ran into the roadway of Cape Coral Pkwy E. The first officer drew his TASER and discharged both cartridges in an attempt to gain control but the probes missed Blick. She went back onto the sidewalk and drew back the piece of concrete again but this time actually threw it at the second officer. The piece of concrete struck the second officer in the shoulder. That officer ran toward Blick and was able to force her to the ground and into some nearby bushes. Blick continued to resist officers from taking her into custody by pulling and twisting away from both officers. Eventually, officers were able to subdue Blick and secure her in handcuffs.
After Blick was secured in handcuffs, she rolled over and kicked the original officer in the thigh and groin. Blick continued to kick at the officer to which the other officer utilized his O.C. spray to gain her compliance to stop acting in an aggressive manner. After the O.C. spray was deployed, Blick's aggression stopped almost immediately.
Blick was transported to a local hospital by request of officers.
Blick was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault on a LEO, Battery on a LEO, and Resisting Arrest with Violence. She was later transferred to Lee County Jail.
