The Cop Shop: Flipping off a cop is a bad idea

The woman’s first mistake was hollering cuss words at the cop as he rode by on Houston Avenue. Her second came when, as a Bibb County sheriff’s deputy duly noted in his report of a June 15 incident, she stood in the road “and extended both her middle fingers and pointed them in my direction.” Her third happened when she “then bent over and extended her behind in my direction, and began slapping herself while screaming offensive language.” It was a Sunday. A nearby church was letting out. The woman, 35, kept on cursing. A crowd gathered. The deputy told the woman to cool it, but she marched up and yelled in his face. She said she was irate because someone she described as “that Piggly Wiggly (expletive) kicked me out of my damn house!” The deputy tried repeatedly to calm her, but that only made her scream more. The deputy went to arrest her but she pulled away, yelling, “I don’t have any (expletive) panties or shoes on!” Then, the deputy’s report noted, she “pulled her sweatpants down, fully exposing her buttocks.” She was jailed, charged with disorderly conduct.
