Houston’s ABC News reports:
Just a day after Texas rolled back COVID-19 restrictions, including those mandating face coverings in public, a woman’s arrest has emerged stemming from her refusal to wear a mask. Body camera footage released by Galveston police shows officers confronting the woman inside a Bank of America branch on Central City Boulevard.
With the woman giving pushback, the officer says, “Ma’am, listen, we can do this the easy way or the hard way.” “What are you going to do? Arrest me?” she asks. “That’s hilarious.” The confrontation escalates with the woman raising her voice at other bank customers, and that’s when it becomes physical.
