Woman arrested in air freshener attack

Police in Florida said they arrested a woman for attacking a smoker with air freshener sprayed from a can.

Niceville police allege the woman was waving the can of Glade Potpourri Air Freshener around the other woman's head while dispensing its contents at a Niceville apartment complex Friday, the Northwest Florida Daily News of Fort Walton Beach reported Thursday.

The woman then allegedly pointed the can at the back of the other woman's head and sprayed it for nearly a full minute. Police said she told the victim she would keep using the spray can as long as the victim kept smoking in front of the attacker's apartment.

I will do it again, and take it to the Supreme Court because I have the right to breathe fresh air, the police report quoted the suspect as saying.

The woman was arrested and charged with battery.
