Angry woman breaks own legs

RIDGEFIELD -- It doesn't pay to lose your temper over loud music.

Toni Lynn Lycan, 44, got so mad about the music blasting from the apartment
downstairs that she jumped up and down as hard as she could - and broke both
her legs, according to police in this southwest Washington community near

The injury was discovered when officers were sent to the Carriage House
Apartments on Thursday afternoon, Police Chief Bruce Hall told The Columbian
newspaper in Vancouver.

Lycan initially yelled at her downstairs neighbor - Allen M. Haines, 27 - to
turn the music down. Haines, in response, grabbed a broom and banged the
handle on his ceiling.

That infuriated Lycan, so she jumped up in the air and slammed both feet on
the floor, hard enough to break both her legs about 4 inches below the
kneecap, Hall said.

Lycan was in satisfactory condition Saturday at Southwest Washington Medical
Center in Vancouver, a nursing supervisor said.
