The woman accused of throwing a fake syringe at one of the defendants in the "bad butt" injections case during a taping of a Spanish-language talk show has been arrested on battery charges, police said Wednesday.
Brunetta Brown, 50, was arrested Tuesday on a simple battery charge in the alleged attack during a taping of Telemundo's "Cristina" show on Jan. 25, according to a Doral Police report.
According to the report, Corey Eubank was appearing on the show at the Blue Dolphin Studios when he was hit above his left eye by a prop syringe thrown by Brown.
Video footage showed Eubank sitting on a chair before a member of the audience made her way to the stage. Security guards quickly moved in to separate Eubank from her alleged attackers as all hell broke loose.
Eubank told police Brunetta Brown threw the syringe – which didn't have a needle in it – at her, hitting her in the forehead, the report said.
Brown denied throwing the syringe at Eubank but admitted to getting into an altercation with Eubank, the report said.
Eubank and 30-year-old Oneal Ron Morris were arrested in November and charged with practicing medicine without a license after victims alleged Morris had injected their legs and buttocks with a mixture that included Fix-a-Flat, cement and superglue. Both have pleaded not guilty.
Brown is the mother of Shaquanda Brown, one of Morris' and Eubank's alleged victims, the report said.
According to the report, police interviewed witnesses and reviewed footage from the show, which showed Brown throwing the syringe at Eubank.
Brown was arrested in Northwest Miami-Dade and was being held Wednesday on $1,500 bond. It was unknown whether she has an attorney.
