Woman Charged for Squirting Breast Milk at Deputy

Monday, March 08, 2010

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.

ok, i know, this is completely inappropriate, and why she was drunk when she was lactating is a whole other issue, but i've had a really bad day, and it made me laugh, so i'm posting it! judge me if you will;)


  1. That is pretty funny, but I was thinking the same thing, why is she wasted and breastfeeding????? Does the alcohol get into the milk the way drugs would?

  2. OK, you won't like this, but my breasts are so large, if I was lactating I could feed myself.


  3. Jojo- yes, alcohol get's into breastmilk same way drugs would. some women occasionally will do what they call a "pump and dump" where if they go out for a night and have a few drinks then they will pump the milk and dump it. that could have been her plan. but the women i know that would pump and dump, never get that wasted!

    val- lol! and not the 1st person i know who has said that!-kris

  4. Hey, Kris, they had a doula on The Weakest Link today. I hadn't realised they even existed in the UK. (Mind you, why would I know!)

  5. They're all over val, sometimes called by different names:)
