Slapping a Cop Seems Like an Inefficient Way to Quit Smoking, Right?

So you’ve tried patches, nicotine gum, and Chantix in order to kick the smoking habit. Etta Mae Lopez went with a less conventional method – she smacked a police officer across the face in order to be taken to jail where smoking is not allowed.

The 31-year old slapped Sacramento County sheriff’s Deputy Matt Campoy, and later pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery of a police 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 said.

Lopez was sentenced to 63 days in jail, and Campoy says he’s since earned the Irish nickname ‘Nick O’Derm.’
