We haven’t had an entry into the WTF Files for a minute, but this one clearly fits the bill.
A New York man was recently arrested after he assaulted a woman over a parking space.
According to police, after being upset he couldn’t park in a spot held by Lana Rosas (she stood in the space holding it for her boyfriend), Oscar Fuller allegedly hit her so hard she “flew off her feet,” hit her head on the pavement, and instantly slipped into a coma.
Despite being more than six inches taller and 50 pounders heavier (Fuller is 5’7” and 150 lbs., Rosas is 4’11” and barely 100 lbs.), Fuller said he hit Rosas in self-defense. According to Fuller, after approaching her “calmly,” Rosas struck him in the face “four or five times” without warning.
Fuller’s story gets even more interesting, however. After seeing Rosas’ boyfriend running toward him, he claims he punched Ms. Rosas “out of reflex” and ran away. He even attended a birthday party later that evening.
“I saw a guy running toward me,” Fuller said according to the NY Daily News. “I hit the girl, jumped into my car and pulled off.”
Despite claiming he is a “person who believes in God” and “would not want to take a person’s life,” his victim, Lana Rosas is fighting for hers. Doctors had to remove part of her skull to relieve swelling, and hospital officials are not sure she will make it.
Oscar Fuller was arrested and charged with assault. He was released on $100,000 bail and is pending trial.
