Bar Report: Battery With Potato Chips

Hands down, the most interesting entry in the latest downtown Coeur d'Alene Bar Report report (Oct. 1-6) is an item that occurred at 12:52 a.m. Wednesday at the Coeur d'Alene Resort: "Officers responded to a malicious injury to property call at the Coeur d’Alene Resort reference an extremely intoxicated guest (from California) who had thrown patio furniture over the balcony (12th floor). The officers intended to issue the suspect a misdemeanor citation for malicious injury to property until he spit a mouth full of Pringles potato chips at a police officer. The suspect was then arrested for battery." More: Downtown Coeur d'Alene Bar Report, Oct. 1-6, here.

Question: Have you ever been assaulted with a mouthful of potato chips?
