make out with law enforcement

Hello guys,

Could you tell me what means this statement "This wasn't the first time I made out with law enforcement." I am particularly confused by "make out" in this case.

This statement comes from the movie "Stick It."

    Could you give us more context, please. It could be a woman talking about romantic liaisons with the boys in blue, or someone who managed to escape a ticket or jail time.

    Please describe the situation and what happened for the character (man or woman?) to make this statement.

    I've always understood it, in the context of the movie to mean it wasn't the first time she'd fooled around and had run-ins with the law. I think the use of 'made out' is probably used for sarcasm purposes, and to highlight the feistiness of the character, as well as imply that these run-ins weren't serious, they were incidents that were over quickly and, taken individually were not that big of a deal.
