Did you realize that Virginians are subject to laws regarding missile use? No chemically-propelled rocket was in play here, fortunately for Ms Sturge but unfortunate for those of us reporting interesting incidents. It seems that the Virgina code simply calls thing flung at folks “missiles.”
MISSILE INTO AN OCCUPIED DWELLING-ARREST 08/11/10, 5100 block of S. 8th Road. On August 11 at 10 pm, a woman threw a ring of keys through the living room window in an attempt to hit the male inside. Makeba Sturge, 23, of Arlington, was charged with Throwing a Missile Into an Occupied Dwelling, and given a $500 bond.
I guess “throwing stuff at people through windows” lacked legal panache.
