Here's a silly story, hot off the wire, of a woman who assaulted a man during his karoke performance of a Coldplay song. I'd like to know, why would you go to a karoke bar if you couldn't tolerate a bad performance or two?
Woman attacks karaoke singer during Coldplay song

SEATTLE -- Perhaps it was the lyric "I jumped across for you, oh what a thing to do," that inspired a Seattle woman to attack a man belting out Coldplay's song "Yellow" in a bar.
Employees at Changes Bar and Grill in the city's Wallingford neighborhood said the woman leaped at the karaoke singer when she heard the song Thursday night, telling the man that he "sucked" before she pushed and punched him to make him stop singing.
"It took three or four of us to hold her down," bartender Robert Willmette told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
When she was escorted outside, the 21-year-old woman "went crazy" Willmette said, throwing punches at him and others, including an off-duty police officer.
Patrol officers and Gang Unit detectives then arrived at the neighborhood bar and blocked off the street, which inflamed the woman's rage even more, a police report said. Before police could handcuff the woman she headbutted the off-duty officer at least two times.
The off-duty officer was treated for several cuts, scrapes and bruises.
After treatment for injuries, the woman was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of assault. She was also held on a warrant issued for a previous theft charge.
According to bartender notes, she only had a single shot of Jagermeister.
