Woman arrested after pitching pita at Colo. cabbie

BOUDLER, Colo. (AP) - Police in Colorado say a woman with an outstanding warrant for her arrest was found because she threw her pita sandwich at Boulder cab driver.

The Daily Camera reports that 28-year-old Sarah Renee Lane was arrested Sunday after she got angry with a cabbie who told her she couldn't bring food into the car.

Police records say yogurt sauce spattered on the driver's beard and face, and made a mess in the vehicle.

Officers arrested her because she had failed to appear in court for a dog-at-large ticket.

The cab driver decided not to press charges against Lane. She has been released from jail but couldn't be reached for comment.
