A Florida man spat in the face of a boy who didn’t want to take off his mask
MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – A Florida man going to a restaurant came face to face with a boy wearing a mask at the restaurant. Then he asked the boy to take off his mask. However, the boy refused to take off his mask. The Florida man then walked up to the boy and spat in his face. He was later arrested by the police.
A Florida man named Jason Copenhaver went to a restaurant on Treasure Island on Sunday. He approached the table of a boy in the restaurant and asked why he was wearing a mask. The authorities, who gave information about the incident, did not disclose the age of the boy.
Copenhaver, 47, turned to the boy, whom he asked why he was wearing a mask, and asked him to take off his mask. According to police reports, the boy denied this. Copenhaver then held the boy’s hand firmly and brought his face close to the boy’s. Finally, he told the boy that he now had coronavirus.
The boy, who was the victim of the incident, stated that Copenhaver was very close to him and that he was spewing saliva from his mouth while speaking. According to the police report, the boy stated that Copenhaver deliberately spit out saliva from his mouth.
While this event was taking place, restaurant staff intervened. Staff asked the man to sit somewhere. But Copenhaver responded by attacking one of them. Employees said that Copenhaver looked quite drunk and was not wearing any shoes at the time.
News sources trying to gather information about the incident stated that Copenhaver was accused of simple battery and disorderly behavior. It was unclear whether the man had a lawyer who would enable him to answer the charges. He was released after he had already paid the $650 bail.
In addition, Copenhaver said that he did not know anything about the coronavirus situation when he was questioned by the police. He stated that he did not know whether he had coronavirus because he had never been tested before.
