SNOHOMISH COUNTY — A 25-year-old woman faces assault charges for allegedly pummeling a woman because she disliked the short-shorts the victim wore to a company barbecue, Snohomish County prosecutors allege.

Alicia Rae Hanson was charged with second-degree assault on Aug. 6. A warrant has been in issued for her arrest.

According to court documents, the victim was hanging out at an employee appreciation barbecue for an area tree service company on June 22 at a home in the 7700 block of 184th Drive SE. Hanson allegedly confronted the victim over a pair of shorts she was wearing, documents show, claiming they were too short for the party.

Prosecutors allege Hanson was quite confrontational when she approached the victim, but the two parted ways. A short time later though, the victim was walking around the property when Hanson allegedly “came running down a hill,” hit the victim in the face, jumped on top of her and pummeled her, prosecutors said.

Witnesses pulled Hanson off the victim.

Deputies called to the scene found the victim bleeding with a cut under her eye and her eye swollen shut. She was taken to the Providence Hospital and was diagnosed with fractures to the face and bleeding in the eye. Her pelvis was also damaged.

Hanson has no criminal history.

    Holy crap! And I thought I dated whackos…
    And what makes it stranger is that tree toppers are usually so intelligent and refined

      Sounds like she was jealous that someone could wear short shorts and show off their body and enjoy the sun. People have some serious problems.

    She’s probably not a tree topper Joseph….she’s probably the cute lil blonde that sits at the front desk and she seen she had some competition at the company party and didn’t like it…

    They wrote, she had no crimmal history. Well she does now. I am still trying to understand what her problem was with this other woman wearing short shorts. I bet there was something before this happened. And yes she is a little crazy.

    Women are cruel to each other. Jealous. A good book here:

    “Man’s inhumanity to man”–the phrase is all too familiar. But until Phyllis Chesler’s now-classic book, a profound silence prevailed about woman’s inhumanity to woman. Women’s aggression may not take the same form as men’s, but girls and women are indeed aggressive, often indirectly and mainly toward one another. They judge harshly, hold grudges, gossip, exclude, and disconnect from other women.
    Like men, women are exposed to the messages of misogyny and sexism that permeate cultures worldwide. Like men, women unconsciously buy into negative images that can trigger abuse and mistreatment of other women. But like other social victims, many do not realize stereotyping affects members within the victimized group as well as those outside the group. They do not realize their behavior reflects society’s biases.
    How women view and treat other women matters. Are women oppressed? Yes. Do oppressed people internalize their oppressors’ attitudes? Without a doubt. Prejudice must first be acknowledged before it can be resisted or overcome. More than men, women depend upon one another for emotional intimacy and bonding, and exclusionary and sexist behavior enforces female conformity and discourages independence and psychological growth.
    Continuing the pioneering work begun in Women and Madness—Chesler’s bestselling book that broke the story on double standards in psychology—Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman draws on important studies, revolutionary theories, literature, and hundreds of original interviews. Chesler urges us to look within, to treat other women realistically, ethically, and kindly, and to forge bold and compassionate alliances. This is a necessary next step for women, without which they will never be liberated.

    “Elisha Rae Hanson” is correct spelling. Alcohol problems have led to previous arrests. She took down her Facebook page but there is plenty about her on the Internet

      Indecent exposure is against the law! Penal code 314 !!!! Girl in short shorts needs to be arrested! shorts should not be show short that your ass shows because that is indecent exposure!

      • tired worker

        Don’t know where your from but in all states and a lot of country’s women and men wear thong bikinis and that shows alot more than short shorts, and it is not against the law. I think its stupid to go around wearing those cloths, men or women .

  • Just saying

    I’ve seen plenty of very fat girls wearing revealing shorts and this article doesnt say if the short short wearing girl had the body for the shorts or not ,so to assume jealousy isn’t fair. Likewise it doesn’t say what the body type of the girl who had the issue was. Your private parts are called ” private ” for a reason! They are not ment to be shown in public otherwise we would call them public parts! both attractive and unattractive people can be for or against both sides. The girl in the short shorts was stupid to return to the area after the initial confertation and that is probably what sparked the assault. Instead of punching the girl I think she should of called the police on her for indecent exposure.
