Woman sentenced for spraying breast milk at police officer


A U.S. woman accused of spraying sheriff's deputies with breast milk has been sentenced to two years' probation

A U.S. woman accused of spraying sheriff's deputies with breast milk has been sentenced to two years of probation.

Stephanie Robinette, 37, of Westerville, Ohio, pleaded guilty last month to charges of assault and obstruction of official business.

She was sentenced in Delaware Municipal Court on Tuesday and ordered to pay $200 in fines on top of court costs, AFP reports.

The 30-year-old was reportedly drunk at the time and had just had a fight with her husband at a wedding reception.

She has been ordered by the court to undergo anger management classes, the New York Daily News reports.

The woman was arrested June 25 after deputies responded to reports of a domestic dispute.

However, when sheriff's officials attempted to remove her from car she refused to co-operate. Disturbing footage shows her passed out inside the car and officers unable to rouse her.

She then apparently told the officials from central Ohio's Delaware County she was a breastfeeding mother and exposed part of her chest, spraying them with breast milk.

The New York Daily News reports:

Police arrived about 1am and tried to make her leave the car, but in an attempt to keep them away, Robinette "pulled out one of her breasts and started literally milking it, then spraying breast milk towards the officers," Delaware County Sheriff Walter Davis III said in June.

Surveillance footage shows Robinette becoming increasingly violent and verbally abusive as she is pulled from the car.

When told the arrest was being captured on video, she yells: "Record it all! Record it all!"

During the hearing, her husband told the court his wife needed to get help.

A message left with Robinette's attorney wasn't returned. He had previously said his client was embarrassed and humiliated, AFP reports.

Robinette was an elementary school teacher at Summit Academy, a charter school specializing in students with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and Asperger syndrome. She was fired in July, according to WBNS 10 News.
