ROANOKE RAPIDS, N.C. — A 21-year-old Halifax County woman who pleaded guilty to resisting a public officer and being drunk in public has been ordered to write an essay about how a lady should behave in public by a judge.

Police told The Daily Herald of Roanoke Rapids that Toni King stole beer and appeared to be drunk last February in a Roanoke Rapids convenience store. She also fought the officer who arrested her, shouting profanity and insults.

King pleaded guilty last month to resisting a public officer. Chief District Court Judge Brenda Branch placed her probation and ordered her to write a two-page paper titled “How a Lady Should Behave in Public.” She also cannot drink alcohol during her probation.
