A Levittown mother "punched an officer in the face," spit at and struck an officer with her crutch after her son was ticketed for driving with an expired inspection sticker and a suspended license Monday, Nassau police said.

Melinda Medina, 47, "became aggressive" after arriving at the spot where police had stopped her 20-year-old son on Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown, at about 1:54 p.m., the statement said.

She was arrested and taken to Nassau University Medical Center to be evaluated, but, while in police custody at the hospital, she also punched an officer in the face and caused damage to the officer’s body camera, police said.

"Officers sustained injuries during the course of the arrest, as the defendant was violent and combative," the statement said.

Medina is charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal mischief, obstructing governmental administration and harassment.

Bail was set at $10,000 bond or $5,000 cash at her arraignment Tuesday in Nassau First District Court in Hempstead. She was represented by Legal Aid, which does not generally comment on cases.

Her son was given summonses and allowed to leave, the police said.
