FLORIDA KEYS – A 32-year-old woman was arrested Saturday morning for biting a Deputy after she was kicked out of an Islamorada bar.
Zena Marchant, her address was not immediately clear, was charged with resisting arrest with violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, trespassing and misuse of 911.
The incident began at 2:38 a.m. at Hog Heaven Sports Bar & Grill when Deputy Anfernee Rodriguez ordered two women — Zena Marchant and 29-year-old Yanique Marchant — to leave the property for causing a disturbance.

Both women returned a few minutes later. Zena Marchant stated she was calling 911. Zena Marchant falsely accused Deputies of possessing Yanique Marchant’s purse.
Deputy Rodriguez told Zena Marchant to cease calling 911 as Deputies were already on scene to assist her in locating the missing purse.
Zena Marchant continued to call 911 and ran away from Deputy Rodriguez.
Zena Marchant pulled away and bit Deputy Rodriguez on the hand during attempts to handcuff her.
Zena Marchant was taken to jail.
