(Brevard County Sheriff's Office)
A Florida woman by the name of Audra Adams, 32, was arrested earlier this week after allegedly trying to kiss the patrons at Monkey Bar in Melbourne, FL as well as, repeatedly calling 911 to report the very same bar for ignoring social-distancing guidelines.
The bar’s owner told police Adams was asked to leave and initially refused, then wandered into the parking lot and continued to refuse to leave again. Police offered to call her a cab, or phone her family to pick her up, but instead she sat on the ground and stated that she would not leave.
During this time, she also called 911 a total of five times, including once after the police had already responded to the bar, and once again when police were questioning her in the parking lot. When one of the responding officers asked why she was calling 911, she said she “felt the bar was not practicing social distancing or following the guidelines to be open.”, according to the arrest report.
Adams was charged with trespassing after warning, disorderly conduct, resisting an officer without violence (for allegedly trying to flee after she was handcuffed) and misuse of the 911 system.
Bars and restaurants in many parts of Florida were authorized to reopen as of May 4 under Phase 1 restrictions, which limits indoor seating to 25 percent of capacity or less, and provide at least six feet of space between parties of guests both indoors and outdoors. The entire state later moved to a "full Phase 1" on May 18.
