Judo Throw?

UK -- had this news brief titled: "Woman breaks man's leg with judo throw."

Allegedly, a 22-year-old Taunton man had been attacked by a woman - described as "stocky, in her 20s". The man suffered a broken leg and a dislocated ankle as the woman "threw him to the ground, martial arts style."

Now what I would like to know is how these folks knew it was judo (or martial arts for that matter)? Was the woman wearing a gi? Did she bow to the man before tossing him about? Did she boast about her powerful osoto gari? Was there a referee handing out a foul for the use of excessive force? Or is it possible, just possible that this was any old grappling throw, foot trip, or leg sweep.

Heck, the way some folks watch show wrestling, I wouldn't be surprised if she had some Hulk Hogan moves going for her :-)
