Woman Charged With Tossing Soggy Sandwich at Court Officer in Worcester, Massachusetts

Jane D. McKenna has been arraigned on an assault charge

A Massachusetts woman accused of tossing a soggy sandwich at a court officer has been arraigned on an assault charge.

The incident involving Jane D. McKenna, 46, of Worcester happened last month in the Worcester Trial Court, according to MassLive.com.

The news website reports Court Officer Daniel Padilla went into one of the cells in the courthouse and McKenna threw a sandwich at him. It is unclear why McKenna was in custody at that time.

Padilla said the sandwich had been soaked in toilet water before it hit him in the chest and neck area, and splashed on his face, says MassLive.

McKenna has been released on personal recognizance and will return to court in June.
