(Scroll down for video) A woman of California, who was accused by the city of Sacramento of biting a garbage collector, said that “garbage men are too filthy for eating,” CBS Sacramento reported.
Shirley George admitted that there was an altercation, but she denied biting the man.
The incident began when a doctor warned the woman not to pull the heavy trash containers to the curb as she may suffer internal bleeding.
She told the city workers about her problem and they agreed to take the garbage containers from her yard. One day, George saw one of the garbage collectors in her backyard and he asked for the shoes that were laying around.
George said “no,” as the shoes were a gift from her late boyfriend. George was very angry that the man was looking at her stuff.
Several days later, a letter from the city of Sacramento, notified her that “due to the safety of city employees, workers were no longer allowed to take her cans to the curb.”
The garbage worker said that George bit him and threatened to shoot. She also tried to run him over with her truck and yelled racial epithets at him.
George denies all the allegations. “Garbage men are too dirty to bite,” she said.
