I don't know whether it would be "real life", but is there any room for instances of this found from traditions? For example, there's a tradition called "Battle of the Oranges" celebrated to this day in the city of Ivrea, Italy, in which townspeople throw oranges (representing stones) at selected people riding in carts (representing a nobleman and his peers). According to tradition, a nobleman tried to exercise this right on a miller's daughter on her wedding night, only to be faced with violent opposition including people attacking him and storming his castles with stones and other weapons.

I'd say that'd fall under the "Mythology and tales" folder.
