Woman charged with assaulting ticket attendant by spraying her breast milk
A German woman was granted bail after spending hours inside a police cell for allegedly squirting her breast milk to a ticket controller.
The woman who was traveling without a ticket on a local tram line is being investigated for assault for spraying a ticket controller with breast milk, German police said Monday.
According to local media reports, the 31-year-old woman was traveling with a male companion in the western city of Gelsenkirchen on Saturday when a ticket inspector requested their identification.
“During the identification process, the woman exposed her breast and sprayed the ticket controller with breast milk,” police said in a statement.
The surprise mother’s-milk diversion allowed the man traveling with her to flee the scene.
Alarmed police officers later arrived at the scene to find the woman resisting to provide her personal details, forcing them to pin her to the ground.
She was taken to the police station and later released, but not before police initiated a criminal complaint for riding without a ticket and grievous bodily harm.
