Komen race crowd pelted with garbage thrown from 5th floor

Good thing no one was hit by the cat litter and poop.

A woman was arrested and jailed Sunday for what Seattle police say was the stuff she hurled from her fifth-floor apartment onto people watching and taking part in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure fundraiser Sunday morning.

Police say one man was doused with a green liquid and a runner was hit in the back with a frozen chicken breast.

Cops working traffic control for the event saw a woman tossing garbage from the window of her apartment in the 2100 block of Second Avenue about 9:30 a.m.

The green juice she hurled landed on a man in his 60s who was using a walker. He had come out to support the crowd and watch the event, police said.

The 13-year-old girl who was hit with the chicken breast at first thought it was a rock. She was left with a welt.

Investigating officers found a trash bag full of garbage on the street, including five to ten pounds of cat litter and feces.

The authorities found the woman’s apartment and knocked on her door, but she refused to come to the door at first. When she did finally speak, she said she had just finished a long shift at work and was ticked that the events outside had disturbed her sleep.

She was arrested and taken off to jail for investigation of assault and a misdemeanor trespassing warrant.

By the way, the woman told officers the green liquid she’d thrown out the window was a “superfood” drink. “Superfood is a natural drink,” she said.

Well, there you have it.
