Woman Charged for Squirting Breast Milk at Deputy....
Fox News ^ | March 8th, 2010

Posted on 03/08/2010 11:42:24 AM PST by TaraP

A Kentucky woman was charged with assault after she allegedly squirted breast milk into the face of a deputy, sparking online debate Sunday in the local media.

Toni Tramel, 31, was arrested Thursday for public intoxication in Owensboro, WYMT-TV reported, but it is what she did next which has attracted headlines.

As Tramel changed into an inmate uniform, she squirted a stream of breast milk into the face of the female deputy watching over her.

A press release from the Daviess County, Kentucky, Detention Center, said that after the deputy decontaminated herself from the "bio-hazard", Tramel was charged with third degree assault.

While the public drunkenness was merely a misdemeanor offense, the assault is a felony charge and a US$10,000 bond was set.

Reports of the case have sparked debates about whether using breast milk as a weapon should constitute a felony assault case, with many readers likening it to an accused person spitting on an officer.

Also sparking feedback has been the use of the term "bio-hazard" to describe breast milk.

The formula is based on far the inmate has to be driven from Wisconsin.

She squirts the cop, the cop arrests her. Simple case of tit for tat.

Well let’s put it this way any diease the woman carries is carried in her breast milk. It is just like spitting in someone face.

So?

Got any stats on breast milk to the face transmission of HIV?

Didn’t think so.

When my brothers and I were young, this is how we fed the cats when milking on the farm. We (and the cats) got pretty good at it.

Stat or no stat, it could transmit the disease if you have an open wound, or if it enters the eye.

Would you be willing to be a guinea pig to ascertain the risk?

Charged on 3 counts:
Assault with a pump-action weapon
Assault with a concealed weapon
Assault with a Green weapon
Assault with intent to spill
[This felony began on a sour note from the arresting officer:
“Don`t fire `til you see the whites of their milk!”]

It was an unusual way for the cop to ask for more cream in his coffee.

Still, would you want to wager against it? That’s the point. She unnecessarily endangered that cop’s life.

Prove it.

First there is nothing that indicates she had any communicable disease. Nothing that I've seen anyway. Perhaps something you saw?

Second, even needlesticks with known infected blood rarely transmit HIV, so yeah, I'd take the bet that a squirt of breast milk isn't going to transmit HIV.
