According to court and police records, when a St. Petersburg, Florida, police officer arrived to break up a fight, he got more than he bargained for – a blow from a used tampon!
One woman was so upset by his intervention that she pulled down her clothes, removed the feminine-hygiene product, and chucked it at the officer. She is being charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
“It’s bio-warfare!” says Doctor on Demand's Dr. Tanya Elliott. “It’s incredibly gross, but to say it’s a deadly weapon is a bit much, right?” disagrees ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork. Although the officer could potentially have been exposed to a blood-borne disease, it wasn’t exactly like pulling a gun.
Deadly or not, The Doctors agree that this is an extreme example of taking a bad situation and making it oh, so much worse.
