A Maryland woman recently gave a sleeping man a welcome wake up call. Police have charged Alexis Staton with first degree assault for pouring hot grits on a male companion while he was sleeping in her apartment. But Staton was not through with just the grits. When the victim jumped out of bed, she she went “upside his head” with a baseball bat.

The unidentified victim was able to escape from the apartment with burns to his body and a bloody head. Police have not identified a motive for the attack or the male victim’s relationship to Staton.

Staton was charged with second degree assault and reckless endangerment.
