An Ohio woman whose drinking led to a never-seen-before assault on cops avoids jail.

An Ohio woman, who earned instant notoriety by spraying cops with her breast milk a month ago, was sentenced to two years of probation and given a $200 fine. 30-year-old Stephanie Robinette, a new mom, was a teacher at an elementary school—until she was fired following her drunken night of madness on June 25. After drinking heavily and arguing with her husband at a wedding reception, she became abusive and punched him in the face. Then she locked herself in their car and refused to leave. When sheriff's deputies arrived, she "pulled out one of her breasts and literally started milking it, spaying breast milk towards the officers," said the Delaware County Sheriff. Any offensive use of bodily fluids constitutes an assault and she was dragged from the car—more attempted violence followed. Her husband—sitting next to the prosecutor in court—said, "I don't know that alcohol is my wife's problem." But her attorney said she was receiving treatment. Robinette was also ordered by the judge to take anger management classes. Police captured her arrest on camera as she yelled, "Record it all!"
