A North Carolina man was charged after a woman says he hit her in the face with a chicken.

52-year-old James Clark McCullen has been charged with assault on a female, from an incident on Monday, June 6th.

The unnamed woman says he grabbed her by her hair and “smashed a chicken in her face,” according to the report.

She says she had a plastic mug in her hand and used that to fight back as he pinned her down.

It’s not clear whether the chick was thawed or frozen — or if it was even dead.
