A 26-year-old Coral Springs man in custody faces additional charges of threatening a law enforcement officer after berating police with “racist comments” for half an hour, spitting at them, and saying he would “knock out” their children and “shoot up” their homes, authorities said.
Randy Shillingford, of the 4000 block of Woodside Dr., was arrested on June 26 on a charge of misdemeanor battery after he allegedly grabbed a woman inside a liquor store at 8077 W. Sample Rd., according to an arrest affidavit.
As Coral Springs Police officers drove him to the Broward Sheriff’s Office Main Jail, police said he kicked the window bars in their patrol vehicle and began a verbal barrage that lasted the duration of their trip.
“You have kids?” Shillingford allegedly asked the officers, according to the affidavit. “You better not let me find them ‘cause I’m gonna slap them in the face. I’m gonna rub my d–k all over their tongue. Then I’m gonna have ‘em go back to their daddy crying.”
“’You stupid a– white cracker’ was stated towards this officer multiple times,” a Coral Springs police officer, whose name is redacted, wrote in the affidavit.
Shillingford continued to make verbal threats, police said, telling the officers he would “knock out your kids when I see them, doesn’t matter where they are, Coral Springs, or wherever.”
“Take these handcuffs off me, and I’ll f–k you up,” Shillingford allegedly said.
“You scared white boy. Where you stay at?…’cause I’m gonna come shoot that s–t up.”
The officers said Shillingford also tried to spit on them by repeatedly spitting in the cracks of the patrol car’s partition.
They said the incident was captured on their body-worn cameras.
Shillingford was eventually transferred into BSO custody. In addition to the battery charge, he faces one count of resisting an officer and two counts of corruption by threatening a public servant or their family.
He was being held at the BSO Main Jail Thursday on a $2,200 bond.
