Florida woman arrested for allegedly kissing police officer

July 1, 2013 at 5:55 PM   |   Comments

BRADENTON, Fla., July 1 (UPI) -- A Florida woman who planted a kiss on a police officer's nose as he mediated a dispute between her and a neighbor got herself cuffed and charged with a felony.

Peggy Hill, 62, of Bradenton was speaking with Manatee County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Randy Lamb late Saturday, who was summoned to the neighborhood to resolve a fight over the placement of a fence between two residences.

Lamb said he was speaking with Hill when "she approached him and kissed him on his nose against his will." Lamb, an 18-year veteran, stepped away from Hill and "wiped off the saliva from his nose," the website TheSmokingGun.com reported.

With the help of another deputy, Lamb "gently" took Hill to the ground and handcuffed her.

In a post-arrest interview Hill admitted to drinking three glasses of wine prior to her encounter with police. She said "the thought just popped into her head" to kiss Lamb on the nose.

Hill was charged with felony battery and was being held in lieu of $5,000 bond.
