You've worked a long shift and you're trying to sleep in on a Sunday. But five stories below, a bunch of runners are making a racket in the street. You are entitled to grumble and roll over. You are not entitled to get out of bed, pull a chicken breast from the freezer, and chuck it at the runners, which is precisely what Seattle police say a woman did last weekend. She also allegedly hurled a bag of kitty litter and some kind of green energy drink, all from five stories, reports UPI.

The chicken breast hit a 13-year-old girl and left her with a welt, while the green drink hit a senior citizen participating in the race with the help of a walker, reports Q13Fox. When police knocked on her apartment door, the woman explained that she got angry because the runners woke her up. She now faces assault charges. Those runners, by the way, were raising money for cancer research as part of a Susan G. Komen run. In another case of inappropriately hurdled food, a Florida man faces assault charges after allegedly throwing a cheeseburger into the face of a pregnant relative, reports Time.
