BROOKSVILLE - A 49-year-old Brooksville woman was arrested Wednesday after biting a sheriff's deputy.

An arrest affidavit shows that Deputy Vincent Mascitelli was dispatched to Springbrook Hospital around 3 a.m., finding a "very irate and aggressive" patient, Brenda Goldwire.

The deputy tried to get Goldwire to sit down, but she told him he wasn't allowed to touch her and wanted to fight him.

She then bit his pinky finger.

When that happened, Mascitelli took Goldwire to the floor, and radioed for backup, according to the affidavit.

Goldwire was taken by ambulance to Brooksville Regional Hospital due to a lump that started to form on her eye. After being medically cleared, Goldwire was transported to jail.

En route, she is reported to have said, "Mascitelli - that sounds like Mash-atelli, like how I should have mashed your face."

Goldwire also said she violated her felony probation and said she thought she'd get off in five years.

Goldwire was booked on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer. Court records show Goldwire was found guilty of throwing a deadly missile at an occupied vehicle in August 2009, and sentenced to two years house arrest, followed by three years of probation. Her probation was set to end next summer.

Prison records show Goldwire was incarcerated from 2002 to 2003 for writing worthless checks and child abuse.
