VIDEO: Woman Hurls Ketchup Bottles After Being Shushed for Talking on Cell
DNAinfo ^ | April 9, 2014 | Heather Holland

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.

“We’re 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.

That is so rude. If you throw ketchup on someone, you should throw fries first.

That estimate sounds very low.

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.

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.

"Is it racist to inquire: Was she black?"

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.

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.

Hell NO it's not racist. Of course this SheBoon was black. Only blacks exhibit that type of behavior. Am I "stereotyping"? YOU DAMN RIGHT I AM!!!

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.

She's carrying a grudge because she's never had a daddy. Probably never had a female role model except the woman who shared the roof under which she was raised who, no doubt, had a revolving door or worthless losers coming and going through it--resulting in her "siblings" all from different losers who invariably had their way with her when they felt like it.

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.
