Weird Crime: Please Don't Litter (Or I Will Eat Your Face)




Key West, Florida

It's officially Spring Break season, which means that Florida beaches will be filled with intoxicated college students...and the garbage that they produce. Smathers Beach in Key West has always had an issue with empty beer cans and other form of litters being strewn across the sand, but last week they had to contend with a whole new type of problem: Revenge Cannibalism.

20-year-old Stock Island resident Cassi Lyn Clayton could be identified as a bit of a "spitfire" to say the least. She had already been arrested on February 4 of this year for attacking an officer and causing a bit of property damage. Unfortunately, there's not much else on record about that arrest or her (apparently very checkered) prior history other than a collection of mugshot ranging from completely adorable to slightly intimidating.







 


But on Monday, March 4 of 2013, 21-year-old Madison Pelfrey of Stamford, Flordia found out just how crazy Cassi could get. At approximately 5:00 PM, Madison was observed throwing her trash onto the beach. This desecration of her natural habitat enraged Cassi, who approached the litter bug and began screaming at her.

The argument between the pair continued to escalate to the point where things got physical. That's when Cassi promptly ended the altercation by biting into Madison's right cheek.

Cassi Lyn Clayton was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery. She was also released from custody...so if you happen to be Spring Breaking in Key West over the next two months, please make sure to properly dispose of your garbage and/or recyclable materials.


 ...or hope that the Monroe County Police have
taken other measures with Cassi to help protect you
