LUXEUIL-LES-BAINS, France, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- A French judge hearing an assault case this week declared a frozen chicken to be a weapon.

The ruling in eastern France led to a 35-year-old man being given a year in prison for smacking his ex-girlfriend with the chicken he grabbed from her refrigerator during a drunken argument at her home.

The defendant, who was subject to a restraining order, trashed the woman's apartment after clobbering her with the chicken, France TV said.

The said the court may have set a legal precedent for France by concluding the frozen bird amounted to a weapon.
