Woman Hits Cop So She Could Be Sent To Jail To Quit Smoking

This is certainly a case of extreme measures. Etta Mae Lopez, a woman in California decided to assault a police officer in order to be sent to jail. Why? She wanted to quit smoking. It’s obvious that the patch – and the gum – proved to be ineffective in curbing her nicotine addiction, so attacking the police must’ve seemed rational in her attempts to kick the habit. Furthermore, she seemed to have preyed upon the sheriff’s deputy since she knew she would be locked up if she assaulted him. The Associated Press reported today that:

Lopez smacked Sacramento County sheriff’s Deputy Matt Campoyin the face Tuesday as he left the main jail at the end of his shift. He grabbed her and took her inside the jail, where she slapped his arm as soon as he turned her loose.

Once she was handcuffed, the 5-foot 1-inch Lopez told Campoy she picked him because he was in uniform and she wanted to make sure she struck a law enforcement officer.

“She waited all day for a deputy to come out because she knew if she assaulted a deputy she would go to jail and be inside long enough to quit her smoking habit,” Campoy told The Sacramento Bee.
