Complaint: N.M. cook licked sandwiches, served officers

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - An Albuquerque cook is facing battery charges after authorities say she secretly licked sandwiches then served them to probation and parole officers.

KOAT-TV reports that Yolanda Arguello was charged this week following witness interviews into the bizarre allegations.

According to a criminal complaint, witness told investigators that the 59-year-old would take a piece of cheese, lick it and put it on sandwiches at the South Valley New Mexico Women's Recovery Academy.

Another witness told authorities Arguello was seen sucking on an ice cube and putting it back into a cup before handing it to a staff member.

She is charged with three counts of battery on a peace officer.

It was not known if she had an attorney.
