A white man went berserk in a racist tirade at a Chicago Starbucks.
The incident began about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at Starbucks in the Loop neighborhood, when the man became enraged when some coffee spilled on his light-colored suit, reported ABC7Chicago.
A photographer from the TV station, as well as many other bystanders at the coffee shop, recorded video of the incident.
“Shut up, slave!” yelled the man, later identified as 23-year-old William Boucher. “Do not talk to me!”
Boucher also referred to the man as livestock and suggested he should be tagged with a bar code.
“You’re disgusting,” the racist shouted.
There were apparently no security or police in the area, and the argument spilled outside, where things became violent.
“Your children are disposable vermin!” Boucher yells at one man, who is also videotaping him, and spits on the man and a woman.
The man shoves Boucher, who continues yelling at black bystanders.
“Get on all fours right now!” he yells. “Get on all fours! Do not walk off on two legs! You don’t deserve to walk on two legs, vermin.”
Boucher then punched an elderly man in the head, knocking him to the ground.
As soon as he attacked the innocent man, bystanders tackled Boucher and held him until police arrived to arrest him.
Boucher, who Starbucks employees said had been a problem customer in the past but never violent, was charged with three counts of misdemeanor battery.
The 59-year-old man he’s seen punching was treated at a nearby hospital for an eye injury.
