Florida Woman Arrested For Battery After Kissing Officer on the Nose | NBC New York
A Florida woman was arrested for battery of an officer after kissing him on the nose against his will, the Manatee County Sheriff's Office said.
Peggy Hill, 62, was arrested on Saturday when authorities were called to her house for a disturbance, according to a sheriff's office arrest report.
When deputies arrived, they spoke to a neighbor who said he had an ongoing dispute with Hill, the report said. He also said she took a piece of fencing from his property.
Hill invited the officers on her property and denied taking the piece of fencing. She said something was laying up against her fence, so she removed it.
Authorities said she was tampering with the neighbor and that is a felony because of the pending case against her for livestock theft, which she allegedly stole from her neighbor.
When officers were speaking to her, she approached one and kissed him on the nose against his will, the report said. He wiped off the saliva and attempted to arrest her, the report said.
Hill was arrested for battery of an officer and when en route to the jail, she fell and hit her head. Officers took her to the hospital and she was cleared, the report said.
After being arrested, Hill told authorities she had about three glasses of wine before they arrived. She also said the thought just popped into her head to kiss the officer on the nose, so she did, the report said.
Hill is still in jail with a $5,000 bond, according to online jail records
