A woman has been arrested, accused of breaking into a stranger's Virginia home to microwave butter. Zach McGuire awoke to noises and a voice in the kitchen on Tuesday and quickly realised he didn't recognise the voice it belonged to. "I came flying out here into the kitchen, and she’s standing right there in front of the microwave, getting ready to nuke my butter. And I told her she 'butter' not," he told ABC  13. He made the woman sit on the floor until police arrived. It's not yet known who the intruder was or why she was so eager to warm the butter.
