Woman Arrested After Biting and Attacking Delray Restaurant Patrons

A woman was arrested over the weekend for biting and attacking patrons at a Delray Beach restaurant -- then attacking the police officers who responded to the call.

Delray Beach Police records show that Lindsay Danielle Fuccella was arrested on March 15 at about 8 p.m. and booked on three counts of battery (including on an officer) and one count of resisting arrest with violence.

According to the Palm Beach Post, the incident occurred at Salt7 in Delray Beach when Fuccella allegedly started to climb on tables and attack patrons of the restaurant including Brandon Flanagan, who showed a bite mark on his right arm.

Another woman told police she was punched in the face. When police arrived, Fuccella resisted arrest, spitting in the officer's face. According to the police report, the arresting officer wrote that Fuccella lunged at him "as if she was going to bite me."

Fuccella was released from the Palm Beach County Main Detention Center on March 16 after posting $3,000 bond.
