Police have arrested a woman who they said attacked a passenger inside a Lyft ride and yelled gay slurs toward him.
According to an arrest report, 24-year-old Sherry Moody was intoxicated and became angry when the Lyft driver refused to go through a drive-thru for food.
Once the driver picked up the victim, 57-year-old Jose Gonzalez, from Twist night club, police said Moody yelled gay slurs and “kicked, slapped and scratched” Gonzalez inside of the shared Lyft vehicle.
“It was a beating, it was close contact within a vehicle where he was in the front seat, and she was in the back seat and started just beating him with her high heel,” said Miami Beach Police Officer Ernesto Rodriguez.
Police added that Moody then kicked Gonzalez in the head with a high heel shoe. “When I saw the blood, I start screaming, ‘I’m bleeding, I’m bleeding,'” Gonzalez said.
Moody surrendered to police at the Miami Beach Police Department and was given a felony battery charge with a $5,000 bond.
