(Court TV) — Police in Smyrna, Georgia, charged a woman with assault after she used her meal as a weapon.

Beverly Anne Campbell was allegedly driving in the wrong direction on a one-way street on September 23 when a police officer ordered her to stop.

According to media reports, the 61-year-old woman, who had just left a party at a local community center, threw a plate of chicken wings at the officer, hit him in the neck with a two-liter bottle of Coke and then pummeled his face with her fists. She also attempted to incite onlookers to help her with her assault.

Campbell was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery and felony assault on a police officer, and a misdemeanor charge of inciting a riot, the reports said.

Two other partygoers were arrested and face various charges related to the incident. The police officer is recovering from his injuries.
