Man allegedly threw cheeseburger at police officer

Submitted By AP Wire Service

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A Springfield man has apparently learned that it's not a great idea to throw a half-eaten cheeseburger into someone's face - especially if that someone is a police officer who is pursuing you.

Police tell the (Springfield) State Journal-Register that 35-year-old Lamont Norwood is now facing drug dealing and other charges. They also say Norwood also was stunned with a Taser for allegedly running from and fighting with police.

Police say an officer pulled over a car Norwood was driving early Thursday morning and found a bottle of alcohol and a digital scale in the back. When the officer asked what the scale was for, Norwood reportedly ran and threw a cheeseburger he had been eating into the officer's face.

Authorities did not say Friday if Norwood had an attorney.
