Woman sprays neighbor with a chemical, and the smell overcomes a deputy, sheriff’s office says

A woman accused of spraying a neighbor with a chemical in Deerfield Beach was taken into custody for a mental health evaluation under Florida’s Baker Act, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said Monday.

The woman, who lives in the 400 block of Northwest 36th Avenue, sprayed another resident, Broward Sheriff’s spokeswoman Gina Carter said.

A hazardous-materials team went to the neighborhood west of Powerline Road and north of West Hillsboro Boulevard, Carter said.

The chemical was ammonia, Carter said.
