(Newser) – A Colorado woman has been cited by police after a container of what appeared to be urine blew up as she was heating it up in a microwave at a 7-Eleven, the AP reports. Police say the incident occurred in the convenience store chain's Aurora location last week when the clerk heard a loud bang and saw 26-year-old Angelique Sanchez take a white plastic bottle out of the microwave. A police report says when confronted by the clerk, Sanchez wiped a yellow liquid that smelled like urine onto the floor and walked out.

The report says an officer found Sanchez about a half-mile away at a health clinic waiting for a urinalysis for potential employment, NBC 9 Colorado reports. "When I reminded her that urine blew up where people prepare their food, she told me it was not real urine," the officer wrote in his report. One theory: Sanchez may have been asked to provide urine at or around body temperature for a drug screening test and nuked her sample "to warm it up to body temperature," says a medical expert. The Denver woman was issued a summons for damaged property. She could not be reached for comment.
