An elderly woman was assaulted and knocked to the ground by another woman who was angry over getting a handicapped parking spot taken at the local Wal-Mart.
According to WZTV news, the 71-year-old needed hours of surgery and a hip replacement to mend the injuries suffered.
Kezia T. Perkins, 32, of Milwaukee was charged with aggravated battery in the Feb. 3 attack at the Walmart parking lot, 10600 W. Layton Ave. in Greenfield. Perkins, who is free on a signature bond, is expected in court for a preliminary hearing March 11.
Surveillance video shows Perkins was trying to park in a handicap space, despite not having a permit, or any disability, but struggled with the tight turn, the complaint says.
When Perkins reversed her car, the 71-year-old woman came from a different direction and parked in the same space. Perkins stormed across the parking lot and yelled at the woman, who remained in her car out of fear, according to the complaint.
As it turns out, Kezia Perkins not only didn’t have a valid handicapped parking permit, she didn’t even have a valid driver’s license.
