HOT SPRINGS, Ark.- A woman in Hot Springs has been arrested after she allegedly exchanged blasts of pepper spray with two police officers. Police said Lawanda Diane Clay, 38, produced a can of pepper spray when two officers were investigating a disturbance complaint Sunday. Clay refused to drop the can, and Cpl. Carl Holland used his own pepper spray on her, police said. Clay responded by allegedly spraying Holland and then the other officer, Patrick Langley, police said.
Holland hit Clay twice in the leg with his night stick and she dropped the spray and was handcuffed.

I’ve heard of a rolling gun battle or a shootout, so would this be a sprayout, or a sprayforall? Perhaps a pepperdown, or pepperputsch?
Neighbors lept from their beds the sound of "pshshshshshshhhhhhht! AAAAH! It burns, precious, it burns!"
I knew a woman that had no fear with a rolling pin in her hand.
So could this be classified as “A Salt With a Deadly Pepper?”
Go sit in the corner. ;-)
She’s lucky she didn’t get shot-the cops exercised some restraint here.
Not that that little fact will make the news-they’ll probably get sued for hittng her with the baton after spraying her
