A woman who pepper sprayed a man in the face at an Ohio restaurant got an unusual sentence this week when a judge ordered the victim to spray her in the face as she did him.

On Thursday, Painesville, Ohio, judge Michael Cicconetti informed Diamond Gaston that she could either get a 30-day jail sentence or be pepper sprayed in the face by her victim. Gaston had previously been caught on camera approaching the victim at a fast food restaurant where he worked and spraying him.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

He goes, 'I'd really like to use pepper spray,' and I said, 'No, no, we can't do that!” Cicconetti said. Instead, Cicconetti gave the victim a saline spray in order to give Gaston a scare.

“He's like 'Oh it's water,' and I'm like 'Oh OK, that's a relief,’” 20-year-old Gaston said. “Lesson learned,” she told the judge in court.
