There's a way to settle disputes and there's a way not to. Pouring a pot of burning hot stew over another person's head is generally frowned upon. That is what police say happened when a New York state woman took it upon herself and poured what we assume was dinner over a man's head.

Officials also say this angry chef hit the victim with a baseball bat.

WKTV is reporting that a Utica woman allegedly took a crock pot full of stew and dumped the flaming hot contents all over a man's head during an argument. Police say the crock pot assault left the victim with severe burns to his head and body. WKTV says the victim's injuries were fortunately not life-threatening, though he had to be transferred to another hospital for further treatment.
