But she paid her money

After being informed that she was no longer welcome and following her short rant, the woman threw her purse to a man she was with and went charging across all six lanes of traffic on East Indiantown Road. With officers in pursuit and commanding her to stop, the woman kept running while screaming “ahhhhhh!” Officers caught her on the south side of the road. There they arrested and handcuffed her.
