ORLANDO, Fla. — An Orlando police officer wanted a unique punishment for the 24-year-old Alabama woman who pushed her palm to his face.

Something to bring awareness to the problem. And what better way than advertising?

Alexandra Espinosa-Amaya wore a sign reading “I battered a police officer. I was wrong. I apologize.” for four hours Tuesday outside the police station.

It was part of a plea agreement on simple battery and resisting an officer without violence charges. The judge also ordered an apology letter, anger management counseling, 50 hours of community service and two years’ probation.

Espinosa-Amaya, a student at Jacksonville State University in Alabama, was arrested after clashing with bouncers when she got thrown out of an Orlando bar in 2008.
