Court docs: Woman slapped Burleigh County officer on behind, called him 'sexy cop'
Sandra Kobs-Sabo was arrested on charges of simple assault against a police officer and sexual assault for offensive contact. She faces almost six years in prison if convicted on both counts.
BISMARCK — A woman has been accused of slapping a law enforcement officer’s rear end in a bar north of Bismarck.
Sandra D. Kobs-Sabo, 50, appeared Monday, Jan. 31, on a felony count of simple assault against a peace officer and sexual assault for offensive contact, a misdemeanor. The charges stem from an early Saturday morning arrest at the Crossroads Tavern at 1205 Northstar Drive, which is about a mile north of Bismarck.
Two Burleigh County Sheriff’s officers were conducting a bar check at the tavern when Kobs-Sabo jogged up to one of the officers and slapped his buttocks, an affidavit of probable cause alleged. The slap caused the officer pain, so he took Kobs-Sabo into custody, according to the court document.
The woman called the officer a “sexy cop” and asked if he was married while he took her to the Burleigh Morton Detention Center, the affidavit alleged. She also said she “loves a man in uniform” and that she couldn’t believe she was “going to jail for slapping a sexy cop in the a--,” the complaint said.
It appears she was bonded out of jail as of Monday. An attorney had not been assigned to her case as of Monday afternoon.
Kobs-Sabo faces almost six years in prison if convicted on both charges.
