Breast milk sprayed at cops in alleged drunken assault by Ohio woman, who apologizes
Thirty-year-old Stephanie Robinette, who was accused of getting inebriated at a wedding and spraying police with breast milk, has apologized despite pleading not guilty Monday to charges including assault and disorderly conduct.
Delaware County deputies responded to a domestic dispute call early Saturday after Robinette's husband reported that she got drunk at a wedding, hit him and then shut herself in a car, according to CBS affiliate WBNS.
Police say that when they attempted to extract an inebriated Robinette from the vehicle she wouldn't cooperate. The 30-year-old reportedly said she was a breast-feeding mother, then exposed part of her chest and sprayed deputies with breast milk.
Hint: this will definitely not get you out of trouble with the cops.
The suburban Columbus woman pleaded not guilty to charges of domestic violence, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault.
Before a judge released her on her own recognizance, Robinette, a teacher employed at a charter school, apologized for what occurred, reports WBNS.
"I have no criminal record; I take these charges very seriously and I absolutely intend to seek help for substance abuse with alcohol because alcoholism does run in my family," Robinette said.
Sheriff Walter L. Davis III appears to blame the sauce as well.
"This is a prime example of how alcohol can make individuals do things they would not normally do," Davis said in a news release.
So before you judge this woman, remember: this might be you someday. Maybe even tonight at happy hour.
