Judge Orders Victim to Pepper Spray Assailant

In a literal case of eye for an eye, an Ohio Judge in Painesville has a unique way of dishing out justice. He believes in giving wrongdoers a taste of their own medicine, or in this case, pepper spray.

The victim lost 5 hours of work after being pepper sprayed during a feud at Burger King. The Judge gave Diamond Gaston the choice between going to jail or getting pepper sprayed. She chose the latter.

Luckily for her, the judge only wanted to scare her, so the pepper spray ended up actually being only saline solution. Not only that, but she was wearing glasses. He might as well had handed her a pair of safety goggles.

It would have been quite interesting if he’d actually gone through with it. But what if she would have chosen jail instead? Would he had put her in a chair facing the wall for a 30 minute time out instead?

Moral of the story: Practice your aim. Only use pepper spray if you legitimately feel threatened. If you are the aggressor or antagonist, stay away from all weapons. Or you may be the next person to stand in front of an Old Testament (but softer than a marshmallow) Judge.

  1. Actually, if it had been OC spray, her eyeglasses wouldn’t have helped her much. The aerosolized particles easily get into the eyes behind the glasses. I think the judge simply didn’t want to put everyone else in the room getting a potential irritating whiff. My answer would’ve been to take it outside the courtroom and actually let the victim spray her with OC. Jails are too overcrowded. So, I think the judge is right to be somewhat creative in how justice is administered. Our justice system will not let him have much wiggle room.

    1. You’re absolutely correct! The comment about the glasses was just me making light of the situation. Thank you for clearing that up for anyone else who may read it and think that I was being serious. Appreciate you stopping by today Janine!
