      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Pamela Vecsey, 46, underwent six hours of surgery after being hit in the left eye with the vegetable Saturday night, but doctors were not able to restore her vision, prosecutor Stephanie Damiani said.

The couple was arguing when Roderick Vecsey tossed the carrot, Damiani said.

Roderick Vecsey told Judge Patrick Carroll that it was a terrible accident and was advised to remain silent.

The judge set a hearing for Thursday. Vecsey is currently free after posting $500 bond.
