Peanut Butter Attack!

A Washington man is facing an assault charge for allegedly smearing
peanut butter on the forehead of a fellow student who is severely allergic
to peanuts. Joshua Hickson, 19, slathered on the peanut butter after he
learned of the victim's allergy while both were at lunch last month in
Wenatchee High School. According to a Wenatchee Police Department
report, a copy of which you'll find below, Hickson took a peanut butter
and jelly sandwich from another student and twice "wiped some of the
inside contents" on the forehead of the victim, who did not suffer an
allergic reaction as a result of the September 8 incident. When
interviewed by police, Hickson admitted smearing the peanut butter on his
classmate, but "claimed that he didn't think anything would happen." As
first reported by the Wenatchee World, Officer Steve Evitt noted in his
report that the "incident turned out to be fairly innocuous, but could have
been fatal." If convicted of the misdemeanor charge Hickson faces a
maximum of one year in jail and a $5000 fine.
