A woman, who probably has really great teeth, was busted stealing 13 tubes of toothpaste from a store in the Western Addition earlier this week.

At about 8:45 a.m. on Wednesday, a 46-year-old woman was at a store on the 1300 block of Divisadero shopping around. She was spotted  taking the 13 tubes of paste and attempting to walk out of the store with them.

The clerk stopped the woman to confront her. She maced the employee -- and then put those choppers to the test by biting him on the hand, according to police reports.

He was able to hold her down until police arrived. The woman was arrested for robbery -- which is nothing to smile about.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
