DELRAY BEACH, FL ( — Hitting anyone is a bad idea in general but hitting a police officer is, well, a really bad idea. That’s what Ann McGrane of Las Verdes Circle in Delray Beach learned when a Delray Beach Police officer trying encourage McGrane to calm down at Delray Medical Center says she hit him.

According to a police report, Delray Officer Christopher Trepasso observed “an intoxicated subject causing a disturbance with hospital security. I observed the subject, which I know to be Ann McGrane, yelling at security and another patient. I urged McGrane to sit down and stop causing a problem while it was being determined if the hospital was allowing her to leave. McGrane was obviously impaired and kept causing a disturbance. McGrane got very close to me and raised a hand, as if to strike me. I advised McGrane to step back and that if she were to strike me, she would go to jail. Due to her aggressive behavior I assisted her back to her seat and she then struck me in the chest.”

McGrane was charged with battery on an officer as well as disorderly intoxication. She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail just before 1:30 Friday morning and remained behind bars as of 10:30 a.m.
