A New Jersey woman became so angry because of a long line at a Motor Vehicle office that she destroyed equipment, attacked a supervisor and kicked police. The Associated Press reports that Shawna Joseph, 28, was asked to leave the Bayonne, New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commissions office because she was so irate about the long lines. She left, but returned two hours later. At that point, she pushed a supervisor and broke computer equipment, causing about $23,000 of damage. When police arrived on the scene, she kicked them. The woman was later found to be carrying a PCP-laced marijuana cigarette. She was ultimately charged with aggravated assault, criminal mischief, drug possession and hindering apprehension.
