BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Barbara Lynette Smith, according to police, didn’t know that the 13-year-old girl touching her car was actually cleaning bird excrement from the rear windshield. And, according to the police report, she didn’t wait to find out.
Instead, Smith — who witnessed the random act of kindness at 1350 North Dixie Highway — allegedly ran to her car with a broom stick and attacked the 13 year old girl who was merely trying to do something nice by wiping the bird droppings from the window.
“While wiping the window Barbara Smith exited her residence and ran over to (the girl) and struck her over the head with the hard end of a mop,” police wrote, adding: “I asked Barbara if she witnessed (the girl) causing damage to her vehicle or saw any type of object in her hand that could cause damage to the vehicle. Barbara stated, “I know she had a shirt in her hand as if she was covering something, but I never saw an object or did I see her causing any damage.”
The girl was treated at the scene.
Barbara Smith was charged with Aggravated Child Abuse. She remained in the Palm Beach County Jail Monday evening.
