INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – An inmate at the Marion County Jail is facing charges of battery and disorderly conduct after police say she threw a bowl of hot Ramen noodles at a deputy, hitting the deputy in the face.

According to the case report, the deputy was dispensing medications to inmates in one of the jail’s cell blocks Monday night, when inmate Monique Cooley began cursing at and belittling the deputy. When Cooley continued to cause a disturbance, she was ordered to pack her belongings and exit the cell block.

The report states that Cooley initially refused to leave the block and instead started threatening the deputy. Eventually she left the block carrying a bowl of Ramen noodles that contained extremely hot water. She then threw the noodles, striking the deputy in the head and face. Other officers were called to assist the deputy, to move Cooley into a holding cell. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
