HOLLYWOOD (CBS4) – A Hollywood woman was arrested Tuesday moments after her relative, possibly a cousin, apparently drowned in a Hollywood swimming pool.
Shakira Williams remains in jail Wednesday after being charged with resisting an officer without violence
According to Hollywood Police spokesman Lt. Norris Redding, Tyerra Anderson, 20, and Shakira Williams, 22, were drinking and hanging out at a pool around 2:00 a.m. with two men.
According to police, Anderson and Williams were reportedly involved in some type of dispute after the two men left.
Around 5:00 a.m., Williams called the men and said Anderson was dead. Both men returned and called 911.
When rescue personnel arrived around 5:00 a.m., they found Anderson’s body lying next to the pool as well as a combative Williams. Police say she refused to move out of the way as fire rescue crews tried to give aid to Anderson.
Williams became verbally abusive, kicked, pulled away and flailed her arms as officers tried to restrain her. She had to be tazed twice before police were able to restrain her due to her aggressive behavior.
Williams was transported to the Broward County Jail.
Police are waiting for the Medical Examiners report to determine the exact cause of death, but are currently working the case as a drowning.
