An argument at the Dunkin Donuts on Lee Boulevard turned into assault on Tuesday, after an unidentified #FloridaWoman coughed in the face of a disabled granny, then told deputies she tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
According to NBC 2 News, “a woman who told Lee County deputies she was hospitalized for coronavirus is accused of coughing on a disabled grandmother and threatening her with the virus.
The grandmother was with her grandson at the Dunkin Donuts at 2706 Lee Boulevard Tuesday ordering through the drive-thru when a driver behind her accidentally hit the back of her car, according to the incident report.
The woman driving the car behind the grandmother then got out of the car, walked up to her car, and began arguing about the lack of damage to the vehicle.
The two continued to argue, then pulled out of the drive-thru lane and into a spot in the parking lot to continue their discussion.
The woman who hit the grandmother then began screaming at the grandmother, lowered her mask, started coughing on her, and screamed, “I have COVID-19 and now you will have COVID too, bitch,” according to the incident report.
The grandmother couldn’t get out of her car because she is in a wheelchair. Fearing for her life, she immediately rolled up her car window and called 911.
When deputies showed up to the Dunkin Donuts, the woman denied threatening the grandmother with the virus but did confirm she had been hospitalized for COVID-19 and had a confirmed test result.
The grandmother gave a sworn statement to deputies with a desire to prosecute.
The woman who hit the grandmother has not been arrested. The case was turned over to a different criminal investigation division.”
