A Wisconsin woman was arrested after she reportedly smeared peanut butter on 30 vehicles she thought were parked outside a Donald Trump rally.

Investigators said Monday night’s meeting of the Tomorrow River Conservation Club in Amherst had nothing to do with politics.

Portage County Sheriff’s deputies said Christina Ferguson, 32, was intoxicated when she walked into the meeting and started yelling that she hated the Republican presidential nominee, a local CBS News affiliate reported.

Meeting attendees asked her to leave, and she did, but she was later spotted smearing peanut butter on vehicles outside, witnesses said. According to the incident report, Ms. Ferguson used peanut butter to make phallic symbols and wrote profanity across the windshield of another vehicle, CBS reported.

Deputies said Ms. Ferguson later admitted to vandalizing the vehicles and talked about “how much she loved Hillary Clinton and hated Donald Trump,” the Stevens Point City Times reported.

“Peanut buttering is better than firebombing, and Trump plans on firebombing everybody in other countries,” she said, according to the report.

The peanut butter that Ms. Ferguson allegedly used in the incident was described in the deputy’s report as a “family-size jar of low-sodium, creamy natural Jif,” the Times reported.

“Fortunately, it wasn’t chunky peanut butter, so vehicles didn’t get scratched,” Chief Deputy Dan Kontos said.

Ms. Ferguson’s blood-alcohol content was 0.218, about 2½ times the state’s legal limit for driving, according to the report.

She was charged with disorderly conduct and is free on bond.
