BAYONNE -

Authorities say a Bayonne woman poured bleach on a man after he allegedly cut her off when she tried to enter the drive-thru lane of a Burger King.

Bayonne police say Sheri Williams, 29, was charged with aggravated assault, criminal mischief and a weapons count after she allegedly poured the substance on the victim.

Authorities say Williams was enraged at being cut off at a drive-thru and got out with a 64-ounce bottle of bleach. They say she started yelling racial slurs at the 36-year-old Bayonne man while pouring the chemical on his face and body.

Williams then tried to drive off but was blocked by another car, according to police.

The man was treated at a hospital for chemical burns. His name was not released by officials.

The incident apparently happened at the end of last month.

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
