A Spring Hill woman faces battery charges after throwing hot coffee on a man early Monday after an argument in a Denny’s restaurant, deputies said.
Luerita Simmons, 40, was having a meal with the man late Sunday night when they got into an argument, according to a report from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.
A server at Denny’s heard Simmons say she was going to pour hot coffee on the man and burn him, but the man told the server that she was “just playing,” according to the report.
When the man got up to leave so he could end the argument, Simmons followed him outside and poured fresh, hot coffee on his back, the report said. The store’s manager witnessed the incident and corroborated the story, deputies said.
