Woman Faces Bribery Charge For Lick Offer
Indecent proposal to cop prompts felony rap
MAY 26--A Louisiana woman is facing a public bribery charge after allegedly making an indecent proposal to the cop who arrested her for pummeling her live-in boyfriend, according to court records.
Diane Thomas, 52, was busted earlier this month for punching her beau in the face “multiple times” and scratching him with her fingernails during a confrontation in the couple’s Monroe home.
When Thomas was read her Miranda rights by a Monroe Police Department officer, she stated that her boyfriend was a “bitch,” adding that he “got in her face so she beat his ass,” according to a May 16 probable cause affidavit.
After Thomas was handcuffed, she told Corporal Chris Ballard that she could not go to jail since she “has a good job.”
At that point, Thomas allegedly made Ballard an offer he would refuse.
"If you won't take me to jail I will get on my knees right now," she reportedly declared. "Officer I will even lick your butt hole."
Already facing a misdemeanor domestic abuse charge, Thomas was then hit with a felony public bribery count for allegedly offering to lick Corporal Ballard.
