That won’t fly: Fanny pack used in Fairfax Co. assault contained pigeon

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Police say a woman at a Social Security Administration office outside Washington smacked a security guard in the head with a fanny pack and then pulled a knife on him. Inside the fanny pack, a pigeon was found.

Citing a statement from Fairfax County police, The Washington Post reports 56-year-old Laurie Weaver, of New York, had yelled at employees before attacking an intervening guard Tuesday.

She was arrested without incident outside, but the avian accessory to the assault was only discovered when police looked inside her bag. The pigeon wasn’t harmed, and will be released into the wild once the investigation concludes.

Weaver is charged with attempted unlawful wounding, and may face additional counts. It’s unclear whether she has an attorney.
