CAPE CORAL, Fla. – A retired Cape Coral police officer confessed to punching a woman at the Publix store at 100 W Hancock Bridge Parkway.
According to the report, a 73-year-old man named Gary Chapman honked the woman’s horn at around 12:40 p.m. in the parking lot. The woman, who didn’t like the horn, showed Chapman her middle finger.
Barbara Reynolds, 64, got out of her car and headed to the pharmacy inside the store. Chapman, who followed the woman, started swearing at the woman in the pharmacy. The woman responded by shouting and raising her hand to Chapman.
In his statement to the police, Chapman said he didn’t like the woman’s hand being raised, so she punched him.
Refusing the police’s request to wear handcuffs, Chapman grabbed his wife’s arm. Chapman did not stop, even though both his wife and the police demanded that he stop his behavior. According to the cops, Chapman was frustrated that he couldn’t talk to his wife. The cops who wanted to arrest Chapman knocked him down.
Because Chapman is a retired police officer, he is exempt under the F.S.S. Florida statute. However, he did not provide information about where he retired.
Chapman was released on bail at 2:10 p.m. Friday. Barbara Reynolds stated that she would file a complaint against Chapman.
