NEW CASTLE, Pa. - A chair came crashing through a woman’s windshield while she was driving in New Castle.

A neighbor said he threw the chair because she was speeding but he denies any damage done to the car.

“There was no need for that tantrum,” said the woman whose car was hit by the chair.  The woman wished not to be identified.

She said she was driving on Pollock Avenue earlier this month when she came across Anthony Ramsey.

The woman said she though Ramsey was taking a chair off the road.

“I stopped, waiting for him to get the chair out of the street.  He slammed it and said, ‘What are you going to do now?’" she said.

The woman said the impact of the chair shattered her windshield and sent bits of glass flying into her and her passenger’s face.

“She came flying through, so I picked up the chair and threw it,” Ramsey told Channel 11’s Pamela Osborne Wednesday.

While he said no damage was done to the car, police paperwork said otherwise and noted that a toddler in the car suffered a bloody lip during the incident. 

Ramsey is charged with reckless endangerment, propelling a missile into an occupied vehicle and assault.
