A 71-year-old woman was arrested after she allegedly attacked a pregnant black servicewoman over a confrontation about a parking space.
Cellphone footage of the encounter started circulating online over the weekend, showing the older woman, identified as Judy James Tucker, lunging and slapping at two black service members in Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen in Macon, Ga. Deputies who arrived on the scene determined that “Tucker was the primary aggressor,” The Telegraph notes, but of course, that’s not what she was trying to tell deputies.
What’s interesting about this is that Judy tried to pull the race card. She said she was attacked because she’s white when in reality the argument began over a parking spot and the victim never once through a racial slur at her.
According to a write-up by one of the deputies, Tucker, who was with her son and her daughter at the time, told deputies that the scuffle “started over a parking spot” because “she was white and it was a race issue.”
The two servicewomen—Stephanie Mitchell, 34, and Treasure Sharpe, 27, both black—had a different story to tell.
Mitchell told responding officers that she and Sharpe were backing into a parking space when Tucker’s son told them “they should learn how to park” and “called them dumb bitches,” the report indicated.
This harassment continued inside the restaurant, where Tucker’s son approached them once again and called them “black lesbian……”
Judy was arrested and later released on a $650 bond.
