After it was revealed that Officer Darren Wilson is the cop who shot unarmed African-American teen Michael Brown, a woman told CNN’s Don Lemon of the time she encountered Wilson. The woman, who was not named, said that Wilson told her to “shut the f*ck up” and “sit the f*ck down” after she was allegedly maced last month.
She explained that Wilson would not permit her to treat herself for mace:
I was maced and I had come up to QuickTrip because they said I could use their sink. So I was trying to clean out my eyes with some water and one of the employees told me to go get some milk, because that would help. So as I was pouring milk in my eyes, the officers had come in and told me to get out.
Lemon asked if she was arrested.
No, I wasn’t arrested. When I got in my car and turned the air on and put my face in front of the vent. Wilson made me get out of the car and sit on the concrete and he took all my information and ran my name. And I was still trying to pour the milk in my eyes because I couldn’t see, and he’s telling me to ‘shut the F up’ and ‘sit the f down’ and I was looking at his name tag and I was telling myself that I would never forget who he was and what he did to me.
She told Lemon that she’s OK now–and that she is certain it was Wilson. “I saw the news this morning when they released his name. I knew exactly who he was and I know who he is right now.”
This information is, of course, unverified–but, if true, it shows us a lot about Wilson’s character.
