A woman is in jail after police say she threw jars of pickled pigs feet through a gas station window.

Police described Dianne Lewis who was arrested at the scene as irate when she went on a rampage through the Loyall Kwik Mart in Harlan County.

"There was things thrown out the window. There was stuff taken off the shelf, and blood on the floor. The female had cut her hand, and she was just very irate," said Kentucky State Police Trooper Shane Jacobs.

Lewis says she and the owner of the store have a history .

Recently, her son was evicted from property that was also owned by James Howard.

Police say she apparently went into the store to take her anger out on him.

"I don't know, you know. I got to my breaking point, I guess. I was pushed to my breaking point is the only thing I can say," said Lewis.

She says she does not remember much, except for arguing with Mr. Howard and the police showing up.

She says she does not remember throwing jars of pickled pigs feet or knocking things off the shelves.

She says she regrets it, but also says she will not apologize to Mr. Howard.

"You take momma bear and mess with a cub, she is going to bite your head off," said Lewis.

Lewis is charged with several offenses.

No one from the Loyall Kwik Mart including the owner was available for comment.
