Woman Trying to Quit Smoking Slaps Cop in Attempt to get Arrested

Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) -- A California woman had a novel approach to quitting smoking – slapping a cop and getting arrested.

Etta Lopez, 31, is accused of slapping a Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy. She reportedly told the deputy that she did it because she wanted to get arrested and be put in jail so she would be forced to go smoke-free.

“She told us she needed to quit smoking and that she knew the only discipline she would receive would be inside the county jail,” a deputy said.

 The deputy, Matt Compoy, had just come off duty on Tuesday when Lopez came out of nowhere and whacked him in the face.

She got her wish. Lopez is in jail awaiting arraignment on a charge of assaulting an officer.
