From the AP today:
"A woman who hurled a McDonald's cup of ice into a car that cut her off in traffic was sentenced to probation instead of prison Wednesday.We're of the opinion jail time for Ms. McMissile for throwing a cup with ice cubes would be more than a bit draconian. Especially considering the fact that who among us hasn't wanted to take the remainders of their icy fast-food beverage and toss it at the closest punk driver who just cut us off during rush hour. Given that, do you think five years of probation is too much, too little or just right? – Ray Wert
Jessica Hall, 25, could have gotten two years behind bars after being convicted last month of maliciously throwing a missile — the cup of ice — into an occupied vehicle in what was dubbed the ''McMissile'' case. No one was injured in the incident last July on Interstate 95.
Hall thanked Judge Frank A. Hoss Jr. and wept after he put her on probation for five years. She has been in jail since Jan. 4."
