The police in Rosedale, MD have released the mugshot of the oldest of two black teens charged with assaulting a white female transgendered person for using the women's restroom at a Baltimore area McDonald's.
Teonna Monae Brown, 18, was arrested for the assault on Chrissy Lee Polis, 22, along with an unidentified 14-year-old girl who will be charged as a juvenile.
The assault was captured on cell phone video by a McDonald's employee who uploaded the video to YouTube. The video was taken down by YouTube administrators, but not before it went viral on Worldstarhiphop.com and Drudgereport.com.
The McDonald's employee who filmed the assault, Vernon Hackett, 18, was fired by the franchise owner, Mitchell McPherson on Friday. McPherson said he is considering taking action against other employees who stood around laughing and did nothing to help the customer.
Meanwhile, advocates for transgender rights are planning to rally outside the restaurant at 6315 Kenwood Avenue, where the attack occurred. The rally is set for 7 pm tonight.
Brown is no stranger to the McDonald's on Kenwood Ave. She was arrested last year for picking a fight with a woman and her two daughters there.
Danielle K. Dower, 38, told police that on July 27, 2010, she was at the Kenwood Avenue McDonald's with her two daughters when Brown and her friends began badgering them.
Dower said she left the restaurant but Brown and 2 of her friends pursued them outside.
Dower said Brown followed her and her daughters to another store where punches were thrown again and her wig was snatched off her head. Brown, who is 5'-5" and 170 lbs, then hit Dower with an umbrella and dragged her oldest daughter across the floor by her hair.
In a handwritten statement, Dower wrote that she sustained “a few cuts to my face” and “my head was hurt from the hair pulling."
A judge later dropped the two misdemeanor assault charges against Brown for unspecified reasons.
UPDATE: According to WBAL, bail was denied for Teonna Monae Brown today. That's good! She's obviously a menace to society and she needs to stay right where she is.
