EVERETT, Wash. (KRON4 & AP) — Prosecutors say a 25-year-old Washington state woman attacked another woman at a barbecue because she thought her shorts were too short.
The Daily Herald reports that Alica Rae Hanson, 25, of Snohomish, was at a company barbecue put on by the owner of an area tree service company. She reportedly was displeased with an outfit worn by an employee’s girlfriend, deputy prosecutor Edirin Okoloko said in Snohomish County Superior Court papers.
Papers filed in Snohomish County Superior Court say the woman attending the June 22 party confronted the other woman, telling her that her shorts were too short. Several minutes later the suspect attacked the victim, knocking her to the ground.
The victim suffered broken facial bones and bleeding in the left eye.
The suspect is charged with felony assault.
