Woman Throws Hot Coffee in Man's Face -- And He Throws His Java Right Back

Some people drink coffee, believing it helps fight certain diseases -- and then there are those who use coffee to fight.

A woman coming out of a coffee shop in Glen Park spotted a man driving a very large pickup truck tap the bumper of her very small car. The woman -- not yet caffeinated -- was boiling mad and picked a fight with the truck driver.

The argument grew more heated than the coffee in her hand. To make her point, the woman tossed her cup of joe in the man's face, and he responded likewise, throwing his hot brew back into hers, according to police.

The two tussled a bit before bystanders broke it up and called the cops, who decided this coffee-toss definitely constituted battery.

And that makes sense, because wasting java is a crime.

  • 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.'"
