(Newser) – Police say a woman who was angered when she was kicked out of a Las Vegas-area casino intentionally drove her motorhome into the building, injuring a custodian, the AP reports. North Las Vegas Police spokesman Eric Leavitt says the 50-year-old woman was ejected from the Cannery casino Friday morning and drove her Winnebago motorhome into the building. Leavitt says the woman hit a 66-year-old custodial worker who was outside the building. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the worker was critically injured but is expected to survive.

"A little bit farther and it would have been into the table games," said Leavitt. He told KVVU-TV that the woman kept hitting the gas and her vehicle was stuck in the building's entrance. Employees had to remove the woman to get her to stop. Leavitt says police who were already at the casino arrested the woman. Her identity was not immediately released. "I pull up and it looks like something right out of a movie," said a San Diego resident who was driving by. "You can't believe someone would drive such a lime green, 1972 RV right through the front door of the Cannery."
