Dispute Over Alcohol, Face Masks Turns Violent at Chinese Restaurant
In Massachusetts, the owner of a Chinese restaurant was pushed and the protective plexiglass at the front counter was knocked down when a dispute over alcohol and wearing face masks turned violent. Surveillance video from inside The Ming Dynasty in Marshfield showed a 49-year-old woman pushing the plexiglass after she became enraged when the management asked her and the group she was with to put on face masks. “The woman pushed one of the owners, pushed another customer, and then began pushing things over inside the restaurant,” according to police. Real classy. Can people just wear a damn mask?
