There's a thin line between buttery and battery -- and Dawn Elizabeth Rhash crossed it, according to police.
Sheriff's deputies in Collier County, Fla, say the 49-year-old attacked her male roommate with butter on May 21.
The incident occurred at some point before 6:46 p.m., when authorities arrived on the scene of a reported domestic disturbance and encountered the victim outside the home he shares with Rhash, according to an police report obtained by AOL Weird News.
The victim told deputies that he and Rhash "were having an argument about what food was hers and what was his" when the suspect "threw butter at him striking him in the leg," the document notes.
Deputies observed that the victim "did have butter on his ankle."
When authorities confronted Rhash, the noticed a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person and facial area."
Rhash allegedly confessed she had been drinking vodka, but insisted that she did not hurl butter at her housemate.
