(CBS/AP) WARREN, Pa. - And you thought Silly String was just for fun.

State police have cited a northwestern Pennsylvania woman for retail theft, after they say she sprayed a can of the silly stringy stuff inside a Wal-Mart.

State police in Warren say they cited 20-year-old Nikita Jo Williams Monday night, after they were called to the Wal-Mart in Conewango Township.

The Erie Times-News says Williams was cited because police say she didn't pay for the can of Silly String she sprayed.

Say that last line three times fast and you will sound silly.
