Witnesses and others involved told police the incident began when the man approached the women because their car blocked the accessible ramp to the store entrance.

Police said the man was upset because his wife’s access to the store was limited, as she uses a walker and needed the ramp. He told the women, “Thanks for blocking the handicap zone,” while also attempting to take pictures of the license plate.

According to statements given to police, the women disagreed with what he said and answered with allegedly derogatory language.
