Investigators say she's a peeping Tammy.

Florida Law enforcement officials believe a female traffic magistrate walked into a Broward County courthouse bathroom and took a picture of a man at a urinal, then attempted to bite the finger of a deputy who was investigating the case.

Using a cellphone camera, Rhonda Hollander snapped a photo of a man getting ready to use a urinal at the West Regional Courthouse in Plantation on June 30, then took a second image of another man entering the restroom, according to a police report obtained by The Sun-Sentinel.

A female deputy reportedly confronted the 47-year-old suspect in a judge's chamber and asked her to turn over the photo of the man at the urinal.

But according to documents obtained by NBC Miami, Hollander refused, claiming she took the image in a "public restroom and that she was not breaking any kind of laws."

While being escorted out of the court, Hollander purportedly continued taking pictures of the man she photographed at the urinal -- then trained her lens on the deputy.

The deputy pointed her finger at the suspect and told her to stop snapping photos. But the suspect allegedly responded by attempting to bite the officer's digit.

After a short altercation, Hollander was arrested on charges of resisting an officer without violence, assaulting an officer and obstruction with violence.
