A Florida woman was arrested after bursting into an anti-mask tirade at an Einstein Bros. bagel shop in Boca Raton on Sunday during a recorded confrontation with police (video below.)
A store manager called the cops around 11 AM after 61-year-old Cindy Falco DiCorrado refused to wear a mask upon entering the store, according to police records.
DiCorrado declared, “I’m an American and I’m allowed to breathe. And it’s against my religion. And it’s against the amendment.” As she referenced purported legal citations proving that it was illegal to require masks inside a private business. An onlooker asked her, “Shouldn’t you be storming the Capitol?”
In a video posted online by “Crazy Karens,” a deputy is seen calmly trying to convince DiCorrado to leave the shop, but she told him, “You need to read the Constitution!” and “Get you hands off of me.” She also claimed that the cop was “kidnapping” her when he grasped her wrist.
When a second patrolman arrived at Einstein Bros., the cops lifted DiCorrado from a table and escorted her from the shop. Upon reaching a police cruiser, the deputies sought to handcuff DiCorrado, who then began struggling with the cops as she let out a series of screams.
“I am not under arrest, leave me alone,” DiCorrado yelled. She then twice screamed, “I can’t breathe,” though her face was uncovered and she was not being choked.
With her hands cuffed, DiCorrado leaned over the car’s hood and chanted, “In the name of Jesus. In the name of Jesus. I come against these principalities and powers…this abuse, this abuse.”
DiCorrado was charged with trespassing and resisting arrest without violence. She was booked into the Palm Beach County jail, from which she was released this afternoon after posting a $2000 bond, according to The Smoking Gun.
