A month ago I brought you the story of a woman who tossed and smeared meat products – bacon and sausage – at a police officer working behind a glass window in Framingham, Mass. The story caught my eye because it happened just across town from Network World headquarters and the woman involved shares my surname, though to my knowledge no close relatives.

The bizarre episode garnered widespread media attention – thanks primarily to the accompanying surveillance video – and now a judge has resolved the legal case. From a MetroWest Daily News report:

A Framingham District Court judge agreed Wednesday to dismiss pending charges against an Ashland woman accused of throwing bacon and sausages inside the Framingham police station in December.

Judge David Cunis said Framingham Police provided little evidence that 24-year-old Lindsey McNamara destroyed property inside the police station when she smeared raw meat against the window of the dispatch office.

“From what I see in the [police] report, they had to just do a little cleanup,” Cunis said. “Nothing was actually damaged.”

Nothing aside from yummy bacon and sausages.
