TREASURE ISLAND — A 47-year-old man is accused of grabbing a child wearing a mask at a restaurant, getting close to his face and telling him: “You now have coronavirus.”
Jason Andrew Copenhaver, of Redington Shores, was arrested on charges of simple battery and disorderly conduct after the incident, according to Treasure Island police.
Copenhaver approached the child, who was at a table wearing a mask, according to arrest reports. The boy’s age was not released by police.
He asked the boy if he was wearing a mask and the boy responded that he was. Copenhaver told him to take it off. When the boy refused, Copenhaver grabbed his hand tightly, the reports said, then closed in on the boy’s face and told him he now had the virus.
“Victim stated that (Copenhaver) was in such close proximity that spit particles from (Copenhaver’s) mouth landed in his face,” officers wrote.
What is it about these people that they become enraged when seeing OTHER PEOPLE wearing masks? It’s insane, or more insane than usual, even for Floriduh.
