Purse flies into vehicle after altercation in downtown Palo Alto
A woman who was struck with a milkshake and angrily threw her purse at a vehicle full of teenagers lost $2,000 after the handbag flew into the open vehicle window, Palo Alto police said Monday.
The incident started Sunday, June 24, just before midnight, Sgt. Brian Philip said. The woman was walking east on University Avenue near Rudy's Pub when a white Range Rover full of male teenagers driving recklessly southbound on High Street approached.
One of the occupants allegedly threw a vanilla milkshake and struck the woman as she approached the corner, Philip said.
Police believe the woman retaliated by throwing her alligator-skin purse at the vehicle. The purse sailed through the open window and ended up inside the vehicle, and the teens drove off, he said. The woman denied throwing her purse at the car, but Philip said there is no indication it was snatched from the victim.
The woman lost $2,000 and the alligator purse, plus personal items, he said. Police are looking for the teens but have no descriptions. If found, they could face charges including battery for striking the woman with the milkshake, or possession of stolen property or misappropriation of property, Philip said.
Some perspicacious VC might have witnessed this, and even now San Hill may be funding the newest startup, that will prevent milkshake attacks, and protect one from throwing valuable property into teenager’s cars. Would that be considered in the green segment?
It wasn’t even a nondairy milkshake.
as someone previously posted “never bring a milkshake to an alligator purse fight”.
“...possession of stolen property or misappropriation of property...”
I’m sorry lady, but a good case could be made that you gave them the purse or abandon it in their car. Then, of course, you .have to prove that you had $2K dollars in it to begin with. The only thing I see here is assault with a milkshake.
Their milkshake brought all the bucks to the yard . . .
But can she hit?
Don’t cry over spilled milkshakes.

Stay classy, Palo Alto!
Could be worse, it could be
That’s how they roll in Palo Alto. There not babies with milk, they use milkshakes. And afterwards they went to Cheesecake Factory. ($2000 buys a lot of cheescake)
Heard a stand up comic one time say (in black dialect):
“I’m a member of the mashed potato gang. We don’t do drive by shootin’s. We believe it is much more humiliatin’ to hit a man with mashed potatoes and brown gravy. Many of our victims have been heard to explain ‘I wish the M_____F_____ had shot me’.”
It could have been worse, had the altercation happened near Antonio’s Nut House.
If it came from McD’s, it wasn’t even a milkshake.
This looks like the perfect case for judge judy.
At least it wasn't a soy latte!
