A New Mexico jail cook may soon be on the other side of the bars, after police say she was licking food later served to corrections officers.
Police say 59-year-old Yolanda Arguello licked sandwich cheese, and also “tampered with ice cubes.” They say she would “suck on the ice cubes,” before placing them in jugs of water and/or iced tea.
When confronted, the now former cook told police “I don’t have to serve them. I will show them who is special, better than others.”
Arguello — who is free on bond — is charged with battery on law enforcement officers.
