Pennsylvania teens charged for throwing corn at car

    Oh, the things you can learn by reading the news.

    Such as, say, the fact that food is a solid object and therefore can be qualified as a weapon. It’s a lesson a Chester County man learned earlier this year when he was charged for throwing a slice of pizza at a car.

    Too bad that news didn’t reach Dauphin County, where three teenagers were charged last night for chucking corn at a car. The 17-year-old and two 16-year-olds were charged with disorderly conduct, the Patriot-News reports, and the teen driver was also charged for fleeing the scene when police arrived.
