Woman accused of wiping nose on cop's shirt faces battery charge
DUNBAR, W.Va. -- Sometimes you need a police officer; sometimes you need a tissue. Confuse the two, and it could cost you.
A woman in this Charleston suburb was charged with battery on a police officer after the officer said she wiped her nose on the back of his shirt.
Cpl. S.E. Elliott said he had arrested the 36-year-old woman last week after seeing her slap a man, bite him on the elbow and spit in his face. Elliott said the woman wiped her nose on him as he led her into the police station for booking on a charge of domestic battery.
Battery on a police officer is defined as intentionally making physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with an officer.
