|This woman is accused of assaulting a teenage girl|
because the kid was blocking this woman's view
of Disney fireworks.
This is Florida, folks, so you have to kind of expect this. Florida people can be weird. And people who visit Florida can catch the weird bug.
If police are accurate, Mature objected when the teenager girls in front of her stood up as the Disney Magic Kingdom fireworks went off recently, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Mature's family, who were seated behind the teenagers, objected when the the youths stood up, blocking the view.
Mature "became aggravated," police said. Enough so that the girls decided to leave. Which was probably a smart move.
But too late! One girl told Mature, "You can take our spot."
Reasonable enough, you'd think. But not for Mature.
Police and the Orlando Sentinel said Mature responded to the offer by wrapping both hands around the girl's neck and began squeezing.
Said the Sentinel:
"When the student started screaming, Mature released her and said, 'You dont want to mess with me.'"
I love that this woman's last name is "Mature." Talk about a misnomer!
The girl wasn't hurt, but she and her mother want to press charges. Mature faces a felony charge of child abuse. She was briefly jailed, but released on $2,000 bond.
I hope those fireworks were spectacular enough to be worth it.
