A Chicago woman received a taste of instant karma after assaulting a man riding his bicycle on the sidewalk.
Grayson Throckmorton published footage of the incident online which begins with the unidentified woman yelling at him for “coasting down the sidewalk” on his bicycle.
“I just want you to obey the bicycle laws! Obey the bicycle laws! Obey the bicycle laws! Obey the bicycle laws!" the woman yells. "This guy was disobeying the bicycle laws! Yay! So maybe a car will hit him? Yay!”
Moments later, the woman grows angry that she is being recorded and attempts to touch Throckmorton’s phone.
“Don’t touch my phone,” Throckmorton says. “Don’t touch me.”
“Or what?” the woman taunts.
“Or I’ll flip that cup out of your hand,” Throckmorton answers.
The upset woman then intentionally spills her drink on Throckmorton, seemingly unaware of who was standing nearby.
"Out of nowhere, an off-duty police officer comes to my defense threatening to have her arrested," Throckmorton recalled on YouTube.
“What’s the problem?” the cop asks as he approaches the scene.
“This man was disobeying — and he was taking my picture!” she says.
“Do you realize that’s a battery?” the cop asks, referencing her spilling the drink on Throckmorton.
“No, it isn’t a battery,” she insists.
“You’re telling the police what it is?” the officer responds.
“It isn’t a battery! He was taking my picture!” the woman yells.
“Ma’am, be quiet! I’ve been a policeman for 24 years. Don’t tell me what it isn’t,” the cop says. “You have no right to do that to the man.”
The officer and the woman go back and forth for several minutes, with the woman repeatedly questioning why the officer doesn’t ticket Throckmorton for riding his bicycle on the side walk.
At one point, the off-duty cop asks whether or not Throckmorton would like to press charges and he answers in the affirmative. However, after nearly 10 minutes of talking with the woman, it appears both decided to simply let her go.
“I ended up leaving the situation alone and riding away. In hindsight, I think I should have made her apologize, but I suppose the craziness was too much for me,” Throckmorton wrote on YouTube. “I’m not sure an apology would have made me feel any better about the situation.”
Throckmorton could not be reached Thursday evening by TheBlaze for comment. Video of the incident was posted online in late July, but it only started going viral this week.
