Elderly Woman Accused of Spraying Mace on Unmasked Couple in San Diego Park

An unidentified elderly woman, wearing a mask, is accused of spraying mace at a maskless couple in a park in San Diego, California on July 23.

This is one of many public mask incidents as the COVID-19 death toll tops 146,000.

Ash Sherilynn OBrien posted a video — filmed by an unidentified witness — of the incident on Facebook where she described the incident:

So this happened today at dusty rhodes dog park today in ocean beach. This is my husband getting maced by a random old lady. We had our 3 month old pug with us. We were just sitting down eating lunch and minding our own business. We were not wearing masks because we were eating. You can’t wear a mask and eat at the same time.

She kept calling us idiots and flipping me off. Then she started saying more stuff and I told her to leave the park and stop harassing us. She then came right up to our table wear we were eating, pointed the mace at me first and got a little on me, and then my husband stepped in and took the entire can.

Thank god for the bystander that took this video because we are going to the police now to press charges. I am sharing this because people need to watch out for this lady in San Diego. Please share to spread awareness. That is me crying hysterically in the background because my innocent husband just got maced for no reason. We want justice.
