Inebriated Lady Charged With Felony Battery For Kissing Cop
"A Florida woman is jailed on a felony battery on a law enforcement officer charge after she allegedly kissed a cop on the nose.
Peggy Hill, 62, was arrested late Saturday evening outside her Bradenton residence by Manatee County Sheriff`s Office deputies who had arrived at the home in response to a call about a dispute between Hill and a neighbor about a fence between their properties.
As Hill was conversing with Sergeant Randy Lamb, `she approached him and kissed him on his nose against his will.`"
The Smoking Gun
Sergeant Lamb claims that he gently took Hill to the ground and handcuffed her. After Seeing Hill`s mugshot I concur that being kissed by this unsightly woman qualifies as felony battery. In fact the Sergeant should be commended for not slamming Hill to the ground, and kicking her butt to compensate for the unwanted and unsolicited kiss.
Hill told deputies that she had consumed about 3 glasses of wine before they arrived at her home. I suspect she had a dozen shots of whiskey and 3 glasses of wine.
Hill couldn`t afford bail and she`s currently at the county jail. Let`s hope she doesn`t try to kiss a correctional officer.
Moral of this story:
If you`re a drunk, especially if you are a poor drunk, don`t kiss a cop.
