    And the media are lapping the story up. ehem.

    Got to give her credit for originality.

    Well… um… uh… I forgot what I was going to say.

    “This is a prime example of how alcohol can make individuals do things they would not normally do.”

    Technically, we don’t have enough information to draw that conclusion. It’s entirely possible that that is the sort of thing this woman would normally have done, alcohol or not.

      Except that her husband’s call to the police included his claim that she was drunk.

      I’d like to get some idea from mothers who successfully breast fed how plausible it is that one could express milk forcefully enough to qualify as “spraying”.

        It’s totally plausible, especially if it was time to feed the kid. I used to have a problem the first few minutes of feeding, because the kid would pull off because the spray was too forceful.

        Jim was talking about the conclusion that this was something she wouldn’t normally do, not that she was drunk. All sides seem to agree on that- her blood alcohol content was probably so high it was like having a White Russian thrown in the face.

        Believe me, it’s plausible. Not that I’ve done it myself.

        Oh yes. If you’re engorged because you haven’t been nursing for a few hours, you will definitely be spraying when the slightest pressure is applied. It’s a very tiny, fine spray, but it can reach a couple of feet!

        Hey, you asked. ;)

      • emmdeeaych says:

        To your first point: Yes, sure, but she may well be a crazy redneck when she’s sober, too.

    As loaded weapons go, breast is best

    Yeah where’s the video

    I believe the term is pump and dump. After drinking, she needed to clear the breast milk for the baby. She was just doing what a nursing mother needs to do after a bender. In this case I think it could be labeled Bray and Spray.

    Tip: Never try to breastfeed a policeman while on duty, specially if not requested.

  8. frankieboy says:

    the lawyers will milk this for all it’s worth
    her home address is Mammary Lane
    did the cops pump her for information?
    did the cops go tit for tat?
    the cops are just being babies
    that’s what they get for putting the squeeze on her
    if you’ve seen one you’ve seen them both
    thanks for the, oh never mind

    I can’t believe that not one of you boobs came up with the really obvious joke.

  10. sockdoll says:

    I saw “Robinette” in the article and immediately thought of Boing Boing habituée Mary Robinette Kowal, SF writer and puppeteer extraordinaire.

    Sadly, the drunken lactating lady wasn’t Mary. Looks like she missed out on some great free publicity.

    It is stuff like this that makes me feel sympathy for cops.

    I think the press is just milking this story though.

  12. Teller says:

    Look, calling policemen ‘boobs’ is a sure way to have ‘em at our door and banging our knockers for a little tete-a-tete.

  13. Teller says:

    Wonder if anyone has sprayed Enfamil?

    mabe the cop had a cookie in his pocket and she wanted to give em some milk cookies can be quite dry without milk ^o^

  15. Brian Damage says:

    Every lawbook has rules about abusing police officers, but many have additional stipulations about assaulting officers with bodily fluids. This woman is probably in a huge amount of trouble.

  16. Deidzoeb says:

    Spraying cops is cute, but this story has nothing on the lactating stripper who allegedly sprayed a lap dance customer. Assault charges were dropped.

    Just yesterday a friend of mine told me that when he was five, his best friend’s mother (who also had a 1-year-old) would chastise the two five-year-olds by spraying them with milk. On multiple occasions.

  18. ill lich says:

    In this day and age, when everyone is toting a video camera of some kind, we don’t have footage of THIS!? That’s what I find most shameful here.

    You would think one with such a extensive heritage of policing would be prepared for any situation, no matter how ludicrous.

    I think a better way to say it is that alcohol lowers the mental barriers to allow individuals do things they would not normally do.

    Wow. I lost count of the wrong.

    Is the Midwest the new South?

      It’s Delaware County, OH. I went to college there and still have friends there, including a couple of attorneys. This surprises me not at all.

      • g0d5m15t4k3 says:

        OWU? I’m sorry. Still paying those loans off?

        Anyway, I agree. This doesn’t surprise me at all for that location. I cracked a smile when I heard this on News of the Weird this morning on the radio.

    Looks like the police really failed to keep abreast of the situation.

    Personally, I think alcohol makes people act the way they want to – they’re just able to restrain themselves a little better when they’re sober.

    I’ve dealt with too many abusive alcoholics to have much sympathy or patience with bad-acting drunks.

    Yeah, if they order a ‘dramatic re-enactment’ in the courtroom, I’m selling tickets outside on the steps.
