A judge has given probation to a Lincoln woman who slapped a police officer while being escorted from the business from which she had been fired.

Forty-two-year-old Anita Cobb was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months' probation.

Court records say Cobb was fired from her job as a personnel director on Aug. 27, but sat at a picnic table at the business and refused to leave. Police say that when officers resorted to forcibly removing her from the property, she struggled and hit Officer Robert Brenner in the face with an open hand.

Cobb pleaded guilty March 25 to third-degree assault and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors.
