Tampa Bay Times wrote an article covering the situation, in which they include that the women ignored the man's request to remain socially distanced. She then followed the man out to his vehicle where she keyed his car and got extremely close to him, calling him names and slurs. 

The man then tried to report this to the police where she then proceeded to kick the man and stomp the phone, trying to break it; She then fled the scene.
