A spicy weapon led to charges for a woman in Seattle.
Seattle Police say that a woman in her 50s was sitting outside a crisis centre around 4:30 p.m. when another woman approached her from behind and hit her in the head with a bottle of Tabasco hot sauce.
Police did not release the size of the bottle, or the flavour of Tabasco.
The suspect fled to a nearby park and was arrested.
After her arrest, the woman was taken to hospital for treatment of injuries caused by hitting her head on the street and in the patrol car.
The victim refused treatment.
