A Southern California couple says they packed up for a picnic lunch with their 3-month-old pug puppy and headed to the local dog part. Ash O'Brien and her husband Jarrett Kelley were enjoying their lunch and minding their business when a woman approached them and started to berate the couple for not wearing their masks while eating- that's a thing?
So far it doesn't seem like police have made an arrest but the altercation ended with O'Brien rushing her husband to the emergency room after the woman pepper-sprayed him reportedly unprovoked. The interaction was caught on camera.
She added, "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."
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.
