Posted on 04/09/2014 2:41:06 PM PDT by nickcarraway
A woman trashed a Flatiron diner smashing glass ketchup bottles against a mirror and TV in a videotaped rampage after a manager asked her to leave for screaming into her cellphone for 30 minutes, the NYPD said.
Latima Brown, 22, was having a loud, profane phone conversation when she entered Malibu Diner at 163 W. 23rd St. with a friend about 5:10 a.m. April 2, police and owner Alex Grimpas said.
She was yelling and very upset and very verbal, Grimpas, who wasn't present at the time, said about the incident caught on the restaurant's surveillance cameras.
Were used to loud, but the cursing was very heavy."
Brown sat in a booth without ordering anything and continued to yell into the phone for about 30 minutes, not stopping when a manager asked her to quiet down, Grimpas said.
When the manager finally demanded that she go, Brown spat in his face, threw a glass of water and tried to hit him with a glass container holding sugar packets, surveillance footage shows.
"When the manager told her to leave if she wasn't going to order food, she got very irritated," Grimpas said.
As the manager tried to remove the woman from the 24-hour diner, she punched him in the head and grabbed three glass Heinz ketchup bottles along the way, smashing one against a mirror, another against a wall and hurling one at a flatscreen TV.
The TV won't turn on anymore, Grimpas said.
Her friend was trying to hold her back, but she went ballistic, Grimpas said.
When Brown finally left the store, the manager called the police, who caught up with her on the northeast corner of East 23rd Street and Park Avenue and arrested her, police said.
The scuffle left the manager with a small bruise on his forehead. About $1,200 in property was damaged during the melee, police said.
Brown was charged with assault and criminal mischief and released, according to the Manhattan District Attorney's office. An order of protection was issued during her arraignment. She's due in court May 15.
Slideshow A woman threw ketchup bottles inside of Flatiron Diner after a manager told her to quiet down or leave.
Her lawyer did not immediately respond to an inquiry.
That is so rude. If you throw ketchup on someone, you should throw fries first.
What, they didn’t accept her EBT card??
That estimate sounds very low.
Is it racist to inquire: Was she black?
Did we even have to click on this?
is this the same woman who called 911 over a lack of fried shrimp at some fast food joint?
tried to hit him with a glass sugar container? and this child isn’t in a psych ward counting tuffs on the padding?
The behavior alone tells me it was one of Holder’s people. When will black people get tired of this idiocy on parade?
Just the soul of discretion, wasn’t she? She has obviously been schooled in proper manners...
Typical Amish behavior on the video.
"When the manager told her to leave if she wasn't going to order food, she got very irritated...
THEN she got irritated. I guess she just be playin' till then.
The restaurant shoulda dropped the Cone of Silence on her near the beginning.
Al Sharpton is on the case. but first he needs to know if the man who manhandled her was a)a regular white guy,,,2)a local crackerhead,,,3)a white hispanic,,or 4)Typical White Racist.
Now DINERS aren't safe to get flapjacks at 5AM?????
Sounds like meth to me.
Great. Another excuse to put a struggling black woman in jail.
Are we supposed to cut her a break because of the legacy of slavery and discrimination?????? Maybe she was just protesting those issues????
I would love to hear how John Kerry and his wife feel about this tragedy.
Young black women are the worst of the worst. Utterly vile.
maybe she forgot to take her “Loony Pills” again?
young black women will never let go of slavery.it’s the primary excuse for all of their crimes and embarrassing public moments that end up in battles with white men.
It figures. It’s not a bumbling drunk Caucasian.
A low-inforamtion voter, who most likely, is a friend of Jeannette, from Florida!
What do you want to bet it was an Obungaphone?
Dennis Roddman would of reacted in the same manner,only he would of been dressed in drag.
hey,it could of been much worse,lets be thankful there wasn’t an 80’s standard telephone nearby.
Any relation to this gal?
Topless womans McDonalds rampage caught on tape
Though it is rarely mentioned, there is an illegal device called a cellphone blocker. It breaks up the signal of any cellphone within about 15 feet. Though illegal, it is very popular among those who dislike cellphone conversations in public.
Take away her obamaphone.
Latima, how could you?
Well, many would say the question is racist, I'm sure.
As far as the facts are concerned, the answer is "yes." She is black.
And that's all I need to know.
“hey,it could of been much worse,lets be thankful there wasnt an 80s standard telephone nearby.”
You got that right.
Girl hit me in the mouth with one, and before you ask yes I hit her back.
She was so drunk she couldn’t even walk much less drive.
I had taken her keys and she wanted them back and I got a phone in the mouth for my trouble.
I knew before I looked it was one of Obama’s supporters. There is a large percentage of the black population that literally should not be allowed in civilization.
That’s just messed up.
Not Meth. Ghettomium.
I didn’t even know ketchup came in glass bottles anymore.
Not that that’s the issue here...
Latima’s friend Linoleum was unavailable for comment.
Naw, she’s carrying a grudge because George Zimmerman killed a black thug named Traytable who was trying to kill him. Holder and company make sure low IQ useful idiots are constantly agitated over some fantasy. Reality is whatever Jackson, Sharpton, and Holder tell them it is.
If obastard had a daughter? Wait, he does. Well, moochie does anyway.
Civility, shame, decency... all dead or dying.
The attitude of the staff is a reflection of the attitude of the management... the white hut will do as an example of management. His people have been given a message that lawlessness is just fine.
We are through.
If Barack Obama had a sister........
Then there is the society which channels all that anger, anxiety and helplessness toward the functioning main stream of society. Yeah, we get to live with the results and BLAMED for it.
No, just urban "culture".
