Yeah, you know you thought you read that wrong.
I damn sure did.
When I first heard about this story I thought this lady had taken a bottle of already expressed breast milk and sprayed it on arresting officers.
But no, she actually did it the old fashioned way, whipping out her right breast while locked in a car during a domestic dispute and spaying the cops with her own milk like it was mace, but more nutritious.
The fact that Stephanie Robinette, 30, was also a teacher is just icing on the cake.
The woman who sprayed Delaware County sheriff’s deputies with breast milk while resisting arrest last weekend has been fired from her teaching job, according to documents obtained by The Dispatch today after a public-records request.
Stephanie Robinette, 30, of Westerville, had been a teacher at Summit Academy on Columbus’ East Side. A letter in her personal file dated Wednesday states that she was terminated “as a result of recent developments.” The school informed the state board of education yesterday that she had been fired for engaging in “conduct unbecoming” the profession.
She was arrested early Saturday morning at Bridgewater Banquet facility on Sawmill Parkway in Delaware County, after deputies arrived to break up a fight between Robinette and her husband.
Witnesses and her husband told deputies that he and his wife, who was drunk, were arguing and she struck him multiple times, before locking herself in the car.
According to the sheriff’s office, Mrs. Robinette began yelling profanities when they approached the car and refused to get out. She then told them she is a breastfeeding mother, removed her right breast from her dress and began spraying deputies and the car with her breast milk.
She pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges of domestic violence, assault, obstructing official business, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, all misdemeanors, in Delaware County Municipal Court.
