This is what happens when emotions override logic, sound judgement and common sense:Woman Shoots Fireworks at Police Helicopter.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Annoyed with a sheriff's helicopter flying over her house late Thursday night, Marjorie Thompson ran outside with a bottle rocket launcher and started shooting rockets at the aircraft, authorities said.

Authorities said they caught Thompson, 44, in the act of launching the second bottle rocket.

Thompson is facing a felony charge of shooting or throwing a deadly missile into an aircraft.

The helicopter was in the area searching for a suspect in a car theft, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

The helicopter's pilot said the craft's flight pattern was never in jeopardy.

Who knew the Land of the Magic Kingdom was a war zone?
