MIAMI BEACH, FL - According to authorities, on Sunday, December 11th, a woman who claimed to be a "God from ancient Egypt" was arrested after attacking civilians.

The individual, identified as 26-year-old Emily Thomas Lochten of Boynton Beach, was hitting and threatening random people while slamming tables and throwing items. The arrest report states that the first officer at the scene on Espanola Way and Washington Avenue tried to take Lochten into custody, but she became "aggressive and hostile" toward the officer, screaming, "Don't touch me!" and slapping the officer in the face. Police said that the officer tried to stop Lochten's actions with his Taser, but it was unsuccessful.

Authorities said another officer tried to assist and dodged Lochten as she tried to also hit him. The arrest report indicates that Lochten had "unusual strength" from what appeared to be from "an unknown substance." It reportedly took several officers to stabilized and get Lochten into handcuffs. She was ultimately restrained on a stretcher that was brought in from a fire rescue truck.

Reportedly, a witness told officers that the woman had stopped her car in traffic and began screaming and slamming the hoods of random cars driving by.

Police said the woman then parked her car and walked over to the restaurant Havana 1957 and began slamming tables and throwing dishes and cups in the director of customers. The manager of the restaurant told police that he asked Lochten to leave, but she smacked his hand and continued to make a scene.

Lochten was shouting during the entirety of the struggle to arrest her, claiming that she was related to late rapper Tupac Shakur and was also "a God from ancient Egypt who could take on all of us." Lochten was taken to Mount Sinai Medical Center to be medically cleared before being transported to the Turner Guilford Knight Correction Center. As of this writing, she faces charges of batter on a police officer, resisting an officer with violence, assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without evidence.

In Miami, Florida, the woman and former periodic Fox News guest known as the "Liberal Sherpa," was arrested on Friday, December 9th, on accusations that she kidnapped and financially exploited her 88-year-old mother. According to the press release from the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office, 51-year-old Catherine Arue Jones is facing a host of felonies, including kidnapping, elderly exploitation and organized scheme to defraud.

Investigators believe Jones may have made off with more than $224,000, including the missing disbursement of the proceeds of a reverse mortgage of her mother's house in which all the money appeared to go into accounts controlled by Jones. Detectives have been trying to arrest Jones since June when a judge signed a warrant for her arrest.

The press release states that she is believed to have been evading arrest and even took off to Mexico at one point in time. Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle inferred that these types of crimes happen too often with a blood relative.

She said: "Every incident of alleged elder exploitation or abuse touches our heart and never fails to shock us. It seems particularly harder to understand when the alleged perpetrator of the exploitation is a daughter, or a son or another blood relative."

Prosecutors said that Jones tricked her mother into believing that she was going on an "ice cream outing" with her granddaughters, but she was then locked into an assisted living facility. Detectives said that the mother was able to call someone she knew for help before Jones instructed the facility to stop her from using the phone or receiving visitors.

The arrest report said that Jones allegedly used a revoked Power of Attorney to "twice involuntarily place her mother in assisted living facilities so that she could take financial gain of her mother's banking account." The press release from the district attorney's office said that Jones allegedly made complaints to DCF that her mother had "organic brain damage or dementia," rendering the victim unable to adequately care for herself.

DCF adult protection investigators and medical doctors found Jones' claims to be untrue, which led to the victim's release from the assisted living facility. Detectives also said that the initial investigation focused on the use of a quitclaim deed to turn the title of the victim's home over entirely to Jones. Investigators said that the elderly mother denied ever signing the document.
