New Jersey woman mad at long lines in vehicle office smashes computers and kicks cops

In New Jersey, a woman who apparently lost her temper over having to wait in a long line at a New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission office snapped into a violent rage, smashing computer equipment, assaulting two staffers, and kicking police officers when they tried to arrest her, authorities say.

Not a great idea.

After Shawna Joseph, 28, of Jersey City, was told to leave the office in Bayonne around 2 PM Tuesday, authorities say she got upset about how long the line was. She returned to the office two hours later and they say she caused another disturbance that time.


When she was confronted during the second visit, Joseph pushed the office manager and began breaking computer equipment, authorities said, eventually causing $23,000 in damage overall.
