MIAMI (AP) — A South Florida nun found herself in handcuffs this week after she allegedly confronted a Miami police officer who was trying to disarm a homeless man.
According to a police report, Sister Margaret Anthony was cited for obstructing justice and disorderly conduct, which are both misdemeanor offenses. Police spokesman Delrish Moss said she was not taken to jail and court date has not yet been set.
Moss said the officer was called to a shelter Monday after authorities received calls about a homeless man wielding a knife and ice pick. The officer had the homeless man at gunpoint and was asking onlookers to stay back. That's when the nun stood between the officer and the homeless man, disrupting the operation.
