An elderly woman was arrested, charged and convicted of assault after throwing a bag of dog poo on a professor because she hates cyclists, according to court proceedings in the United Kingdom.

Cambridge Police said that Susan Currall did it because she was sick of cyclists driving full speed towards her.

The 75-year-old also taunted the victim and told him to “go cry to your mom,” and called him a “big bully.”

Currall pleaded guilty to assault and was ordered to pay 25 pounds or about $35 in dry cleaning costs.

Victim Michael Ramage said that he was not physically intimidated.

“I know that I did not suffer any serious injuries, but the mental anguish of having to deal with the dog poo was terrible. I had my children with me, and the incident is stressing them out,” he said.

The incident occurred on a pedestrians path for cyclists in Trumpington, Cambridge. Currall was walking her dog at the time.

Currall, who worked for the British Embassy in the U.S., was given a conditional discharge for 12 months and was ordered to pay 100 pounds or about $150 in court costs.

The woman was cited for assault twice in 2007.
