A woman ejected from a Florida bagel shop reportedly fought with the police and cited the Constitution when they tried to remove her from the establishment and detain her.
61-year-old Cindy Falco DiCorrado lives in Boynton Beach, Florida.
Late in the morning on January 14, DiCorrado and a young woman were reportedly at the Einstein Bros. Bagels shop on the Florida Atlantic University College of Business campus.
When DiCorrado allegedly refused to wear a mask, the management asked the woman to leave.
While protesting against the mask order and being told to exit the establishment, DiCorrado took a seat at one of the tables.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office was notified about the alleged ongoing clash between DiCorrado and the bagel store manager.
Deputies were dispatched to the bakery, and the young woman with DiCorrado began to film the interaction between DiCorrado and the authorities.
In the video, DiCorrado is seen struggling with a deputy and telling him that he was “violating the constitutions” when he placed a hand on her arm.
DiCorrado is shown hollering at the camera as she tells the officer that he is breaking the law by touching her.
A second deputy stepped in and helped lift DiCorrado and carry her out of the bagel shop. The woman continued struggling as she checked with her friend to ensure that the encounter was being recorded.
The police asked her to stop resisting, and DiCorrado told them that she was not under arrest and that they were trying to kidnap her and steal her purse.
When DiCorrado asked the woman filming the interaction to get her belongings, the deputies would not allow it.
DiCorrado began accusing the officers of abuse and tried to tell the police they could not detain her. She expressed her belief that one could not be accused of trespassing in a business since they rent the space instead of owning the land.
DiCorrado was taken into custody and booked into the county jail on a $2,000 bond.
She is expected to face charges for suspicion of trespassing and resisting arrest without violence.
DiCorrado was released from custody the following day, and she is disallowed from entering Einstein Bros., in addition to being ordered to have no contact with the manager.
