STRASBOURG, FRANCE—A French court convicted a mother of two of premeditated armed violence after she tried out her new teargas canister on an innocent shopper to see if it worked, police said on Friday.

Disguised in dark glasses and a hat, the unnamed 35-year-old sprayed a woman shopper who had just returned to her car in a supermarket car park.

Unimpressed by the defendant’s plea that she had merely wanted to try out the device, the court in the northeast town of Saverne gave her a four month suspended sentence.

Police also offered to test their newly purchased firearms on the woman but, after much deliberation, the court declined the offer.
