A speeding stop turned into a fist fight Friday afternoon, landing a Golden Gate Estates woman in jail on charges of attacking a law enforcement officer, authorities said.

A Collier County sheriff's deputy initially pulled over Josefina Tornincaso, 45, of the 14000 block of Indigo Lakes Circle, for going nearly 20 mph over the posted 45 mph speed limit, records show.

According to an arrest report, when he approached her vehicle, Tornincaso jumped out of the car and pulled off her sunglasses, before getting into the deputy's face, saying "What is the problem?"

When he tried to escort Tornincaso back to her car, she punched him in the nose and a physical altercation ensued, during which the deputy grabbed her long hair and put her in a headlock, the report said.

A bystander helped the deputy hold down Tornincaso to handcuff her, the report said.

She faces felony charges of battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer with violence.
