There have been a lot of crazy crimes but this one is completely nuts: a Michigan woman is under investigation for assault, because she mailed a letter coated with peanut butter to her ex-husband, whose new wife just happens to have a peanut allergy.

Reports didn't indicate if it was a chunky or smooth spread smeared on the letter.

The victim, who hasn't been identified, believed it was a deliberate attempt harm her, because, like a growing number of Americans, she's highly sensitive to the legume, radio station WSJM reported.

The woman denied trying to hurt her ex-husband's spouse and said she lathered the peanut butter to keep her from reading the private correspondence.

Calhoun County prosecutors didn't return calls to AOL Weird News, but reports said the officials are investigating the incident which happend June 10.
