Congratulations, Tajuana Banks, you are the wurst.

The 31-year-old woman from Des Moines allegedly assaulted a woman with a German sausage on Monday night following an altercation regarding childcare for the woman's granddaughter, according to Iowa police.

KCCI-TV reports that Banks hurled the bratwurst at Connie Jones' chest after yelling profanities and, according to Jones, attempting to start a fight.

The police said that Jones, 63, remained calm and resisted altercation, up until Banks threw the processed meat.

"Police documented grease marks on Jones’ clothing for the police report," the TV station noted.

Authorities arrested Banks on charge of simple assault.

According to the Des Moines Register, jail records show that Banks has been arrested 11 times on 20 separate charges since May of 2007.

Officers also added that, as she was leaving the premises, Banks yelled she would do it again if she had the chance.
