18-year-old Teonna Brown, faces one count of first-degree assault, three counts of second-degree assault, plus the newly-filed hate crime charge for her assault on Chrissy Polis in a Baltimore County McDonalds. She remains held without bond since her arrest on April 25th. Brown brutally assaulted Chrissy Lee Polis in a McDonalds. A hate crime charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, which could be added to 25 years in the assault charge.
The assault was video taped by a McDonald's employee and was posted on YouTube. A 14 year old girl who was also shown in the video, was charged as a juvenile. In the video, Polis is shown being struck repeatedly in the head and is dragged across the restaurant by her hair, and at the end of the video, Polis appears to have a seizure. The dispute was over Polis using the ladies bathroom.
These young girls let hate get the best of them and now they are facing a prison sentence and a criminal record. They just threw away their lives, because they couldn't control their temper. When will people learn that hate will eat you up and destroy you? No one desearves to be attacked and assaulted the way Polis was.
