FORT PIERCE, Florida – Police said a Florida woman was arrested after she was making “unwelcome sexual advances” at a bar in Fort Pierce.

Pamela Burnett, 53, allegedly was groping a man’s genitals and also tried to kiss a woman who was walking past the bar.

A male witness who had his crotch touched by Burnett had enough and told police that she had made advances at him and four of his acquaintances.

According to the police report, officers questioned Burnett, but she was “uncooperative” and “showed signs of intoxication,” including an “inability to balance herself” and “a consistent slurring of her words.”

The arresting officer wrote that “she had outraged the sense of public decency and was intoxicated in a public place, and endangered the safety of herself and others around her.”

Burnett was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of disorder and causing a disturbance in a public place. She was released after posting $375 bond. Burnett’s criminal history includes two battery arrests, but neither resulted in a conviction.

DISCLAIMER: Arrests and mugshots were made public by complaint affidavits, arrest affidavits, and police reports. All persons arrested are innocent until proven guilty.
