The title of this post is a redacted version of a comment that an enraged Florida woman made to police when they responded to a public disturbance call.
According to The Smoking Gun, which features the unedited version of the headline, the woman, 20-year-old Tamaria Epps, was spewing profanities at a Fort Pierce school bus stop when patrolmen arrived on the scene. They had been dispatched to break up an altercation between two minors when they encountered Epps and told her take it down a notch. Her response: “F**k you. This is a free country.”
The police report reveals that after Epps shared her view that she is “owned” by the president and that the police “can’t do sh*t to me,” one of the two officers attempted to handcuff the woman only to be doused with liquid from a plastic cup she was holding. Asked what was in the cup, Epps replied, “Budweiser.”
She was arrested, then later released on $375 bond. She is scheduled to be arraigned on May 24 on a count of disturbing the peace, which is a misdemeanor.
Although Epps told the authorities she was at the bus stop to prevent the fight, three witnesses claimed she was actually there to join the brawl. There is no word on whether “her owner” has weighed in.
