According to an arrest affidavit submitted by Delray Beach Police, Officers say they observed employees from Tin Roof kicking the couple out and ended up arresting the couple after a drunken confrontation. When Delray PD officers observed the couple arguing with the door staff at Tin Roof at around 12am, they knew they needed to step in.

When one of the officers told the couple that they are being trespassed at the request of the staff, Arteiro, in her slurred speech, said “arrest me”. Arteiro then pulled back when officers attempted to place her in to handcuffs. Barragan then attempted to pull her away from the officers.
The couple was eventually placed under arrest after a brief struggle. Once in the back of the cop car, Arteiro attempted to kick the door open with her foot.
