Assault with a deadly peanut

Assault with a deadly peanut?

She's also accused of damaging car

By Lori Kurtzman lkurtzman@enquirer.com July 22, 2008

Police say it's a case of assault with a deadly peanut.

Robyn Lee, 23, of Corryville, was charged with aggravated assault after being accused of trying to cram a peanut in the mouth of her allergic neighbor Saturday evening. Lee appeared in court Monday on the peanut charge and a related criminal damaging charge.

According to police and court records, Lee was riding in a car with a neighbor, Shenna Ferguson, just after 6 p.m., when she allegedly tried to put the peanut in Ferguson's mouth.

"I told her to stop because I was very (allergic) to peanuts," Ferguson wrote in an affidavit. "She laughed."

The women headed to the Tri-County Mall in Springdale, where Lee continued to taunt her, Ferguson said.

"She told me don't forget about the peanuts," Ferguson wrote. "Once she said that I shut up."

Lee allegedly threw peanuts at Ferguson when the women reached the mall. Ferguson went inside, then returned to her car to fetch an ATM card. She noticed Lee was stooped near Ferguson's gold Chrysler, "messing with my tires."

The windshield wipers were torn off, the car was keyed and the tires were deflated, Ferguson wrote.

A judge set Lee's bond at $5,000 and ordered her to stay away from Ferguson. There were no indications that Ferguson had suffered an allergic reaction after the alleged peanut attack.

Beans, peas, lentils, and peanuts are collectively known as legumes, which are plants that have pods with tidy rows of seeds inside. Various foods in this category metabolize differently and provide different nutrients. For example, peanuts, which are usually consumed in ways similar to tree nuts are actually in thelegume family and grow underground. They contain more fat and fewer carbohydrates than other legumes. Sugar snap peas contain fewer calories, carbohydrates, and protein per serving than other legumes and are used in cooking as a vegetable. Soy beans are unique for their high isoflavone and essential amino content. They are also used to make such a wide variety of foods unlike other beans in this category. For these reasons, we have listed peanuts in Healthy Fats, fresh green peas in Vegetables, and soy beans in Soy. Please read these individual Facts About sheets for more information.

Legumes have many of the nutrients recognized as important in preventing heart disease, cancer, obesity, and other chronic diseases. They are a vegetarian source of protein for the diet. For non vegetarians, they offer an alternative source of protein with less fat and more fiber.
