A man was covered in green juice and a young runner was struck by a frozen chicken breast when an unruly woman hurled garbage from her fifth floor apartment into a crowd during the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure fundraiser on Sunday.
Around 9:30 AM, officers working traffic control during the Susan G. Komen run—which raises money for breast cancer awareness and research—saw a hail of garbage fall from the fifth floor of an apartment in the 2100 block of 2nd Avenue.
The green liquid splashed all over a man in his 60s—who uses a walker—who had come out to support the crowd. A 13-year-old girl was also left with a welt when she was struck in the back by what she believed was a rock—which turned out to be a frozen chicken breast.
Officers also found a trash bag, full of five to ten pounds of cat litter and feces, and cans on the street.
A firefighter working the event helped police find the suspect’s fifth floor apartment, and officers went up and knocked on the door.
The suspect initially refused to come to the door, but eventually spoke with officers and told them she had worked a long shift and was angry that the runners had woken her from her slumber.
Police asked the woman about the green liquid she’d thrown from her apartment, she said it was a “superfood” drink. “Superfood is a natural drink,” she explained to officers
Officers arrested the woman and booked her into the King County Jail for investigation of assault and a misdemeanor trespassing warrant.
