Even the most angelic of us lose our tempers, but this act of road rage is raising eyebrows--and for good reason. The culprit is a grandmother from Dundee, Scotland, named Amanda McCabe (that's her on the right), and the victim another Scottish woman named Claire Smith.

According to the police, Claire Smith was on her way to Dundee when McCabe, who was exiting a ramp, cut her off. Smith made an angry gesture at the grandmother and McCabe followed her for about 10 minutes. Rattled by the car behind her, Smith pulled into a parking lot so she could make a U-turn. McCabe pulled in beside her, got out of her car, and punched Smith in the face.
When she appeared in court, McCabe apologized and said it was pure coincidence that she'd followed Smith. Her true destination, she told the judge, was a store called The Knitting Pin. Calling herself a "keen knitter," McCabe claimed to be such a pro with a pair of needles that she could knit a sweater in three days max.

That's when the judge issued this challenge: If she truly was a skilled knitter, she could avoid jail by appearing at her next court appearance--in December--with a number of items that could be donated to charity.
“You have committed serious offenses but you have a chance to do something useful with your time. Take this chance,” the judge told her, adding that her actions were "shocking."
