Whether it was intentional or not, Chris's big pickle whacked a 59-year-old employee of the Vermont Agency of Transformation. The worker told police Christopher's big pickle "caused him pain."

Christopher will be facing misdemeanor assault charges.

Hermannsdoerfer has a few priors, including drunk driving convictions, and even threatening to stab an EMS worker with a corkscrew.
