Fresh 'N Fruity

OK, everything this nutjob Amy Bishop has done so far is completely out of line. (Murdering people, sending coworkers pipe bombs, etc.) But this sounds like a perfectly reasonable reaction given such a difficult situation. (What was she supposed to do, let her child sit on a phone book?)

On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Bishop was charged with assault in 2002 after punching a woman at an International House of Pancakes in Peabody, Mass. According to a police report, Bishop was angry that the woman had taken the last booster seat in the restaurant, which Bishop wanted for one of her children.

Bishop, according to a police report, strode over to the other woman, demanded the seat and launched into a profanity-laced rant.

When the woman would not give the seat up, Bishop punched her in the head, all the while yelling "I am Dr. Amy Bishop!!!!"

It added that Bishop was sentenced to probation and that prosecutors recommended she take anger management classes, though it is not clear whether she attended those classes.
