Florida woman arrested for allegedly kissing strangers at bar before complaining social distancing not being observed

A woman in Florida has been arrested after allegedly trying to kiss strangers in a bar and then attempting to report the bar for ignoring social-distancing guidelines.

Audra Adams, 32, was arrested on a number of charges including trespassing and disorderly conduct on 12 May, according to arrest records shared with Fox News.

The owner of Monkey Bar and Grill in Melbourne alleged that Ms Adams had attempted to kiss random people inside the bar.

After being asked to leave, Ms Adams allegedly initially refused and then loitered in the bars parking lot, according to police.

The arrest report claimed that while Ms Adams was in the parking lot she dialled 911 a total of five times while the police were already present.

According to Fox News, police said Ms Adams was calling authorities because she “felt the bar was not practising social distancing or following the guidelines to be open.”

The 32-year-old was eventually arrested and turned over to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Ms Adams has been charged with trespassing after warning, disorderly conduct, resisting an officer without violence and misuse of the 911 system, the broadcaster said.

Many businesses in Florida were allowed to reopen on 18 May in line with governor Ron DeSantis’s first phase of his coronavirus reopening plan.

Restaurants, malls, libraries and gyms were able to open at 50% capacity in line with social distancing measures.

The state has almost 47,000 recorded cases of the coronavirus and over 2,000 deaths as of Wednesday.
