77-year-old Florida woman Judith Black was arrested last weekend after she admitted to an assault that took place at a Sumter County Burger King.
The police affidavit states the incident occurred last Friday night when Black reportedly became upset about the thickness of the tomato in her sandwich. The woman reportedly went to the front counter and expressed her frustration to a Burger King Emoloyee.
The employee told officers she informed Black that she couldn’t help until she stopped screaming, and that’s when Black threw the Whopper at the employee’s head and begin shouting racist slurs.
“Shut up you Black b*tch,” she allegedly told the staffer, before using the n-word multiple times as she left the restaurant with her husband.
The victim’s account was corroborated by witnesses’ statements and surveillance video.
Other Burger King employees were able to get Black’s license plate number, which officers used to track Black at her home in a retirement community in Sumter County.
Police say Black admitted to her actions and was placed under arrest, charged with battery.
The burger incident would’ve typically resulted in a misdemeanor; however, due to Black’s use of racist slurs, the charges were upgraded to a felony. Black was booked and charged, but released on a $2,500 bond on Saturday.
