Karen Turner (55) of Parma Heights, Ohio refused to put on a mask when asked, and challenged an innocent supermarket worker to cite any federal law requiring her to do so. When the police arrive to arrest her, she goes into the I'm-in-command-here mode characteristic of no-maskers. She repeatedly orders the officers to return her cell phone, eventually chanting "Give me my self-phone" as a kind of mantra to soothe herself for the predicament she's found herself in. To break up the monotony of her mantra, she occasionally screws her face into a rictus-like smile and boasts about the big lawsuit she plans to file against the officers for their affrontery.
From 19 News Cleveland:
Court records filed with the Berea Municipal Court show that Turner pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest, criminal trespassing, and failure to disclose information.
Turner was released on $5,000 bond and has another court appearance scheduled on Feb. 8.
Ironically, the woman's first name is synonymous for a slang that became a popular meme during the coronavirus pandemic describing a person displaying privilege and who typically ignores face covering orders in public.
