An armed white man brutally beat a black woman while bystanders filmed and muttered the word “bro” in Deep Ellum, Texas (raw video below).
An arrest warrant charged Austin Shuffield with assault bodily injury, interfering with an emergency call and public intoxication, notes WFAA.
According to the arrest warrant, the woman told police that a man confronted her about blocking a parking lot exit after she drove the wrong way.
L’Daijohnique Lee recalled her simple mistake to WFAA:
I knew I was on a one-way street but I was stopping literally at the corner to let my friend out.
Lee said a man approached her car in an attempt to get a picture of her license plate, and she told him “to get back or else she would mace him,” the arrest warrant said.
The man pulled out a gun during the confrontation.
Lee said she then went to call 911, which is when the man slapped a phone out of her hand and began assaulting her:
Watching that video literally makes me cry. All I could do was try and protect myself. He literally sat there and beat me like a man.
A man identified on Facebook as Ricky Tan said he recorded the cellphone video. Tan and his friends did nothing but utter “bro,” because they were reportedly too scared of the armed man.
