The Town Scryer is a mixed bag of humor, socio-political observations and ephemera from the perspective of a eclectic Pagan veteran of the counter-culture.

Assault...Or Food Fight?
Deputies with the Delaware County sheriff's office arrived at a banquet hall early Saturday morning expecting to break up a domestic dispute. When they arrived, they were showered with abuse...and breast milk.
Evidently Stephanie Robinette had become intoxicated while attending the festivities that followed a wedding that she had attended with her husband. An argument ensued and after striking her husband several times she locked herself in her car.
Thus far a domestic scene that many of us are familiar with. It is here however, that things take a turn toward the surreal .
The deputies said Mrs. Robinette began yelling profanities when they approached the vehicle and refused to get out. She then informed them she was a breast-feeding mother, removed her right breast from her dress and began spraying deputies and the vehicle with her breast milk, Sheriff Walter L. Davis, III said in the news release.
She faces charges of domestic violence, assault, obstructing official business, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. State law prohibits the intent to harass, annoy, threaten or alarm a law enforcement officer with blood, semen, urine, feces or another bodily substance.
The fifth-degree felony carries a maximum sentence of 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $2,500.
At least they didn't tase her.
During her court appearance, Mrs. Robinette said she is a teacher. If convicted she may lose her license to teach.
