(Scroll down for video) A man was charged with battery after he punched a woman in the face in front of other people.
The man became angry when the woman cut him off at a McDonald’s drive-through window.
68-year-old Howard Carl Wilson of Winter Haven, Florida, was in his truck at a McDonald’s drive-through when another car cut in front of him.
Annoyed by what happened, Wilson got out of his car and began shouting insults and racial slurs at the woman.
Brittani Thomas opened the door to ask Wilson what was wrong. She tried several times to close the door during their exchange, but was blocked by Wilson, who then punched her.
Unbeknownst to him the entire incident along with his license plate number was caught on video by another person, who was also waiting at the McDonald’s drive-through lane. He was later arrested and charged with simple assault.
