A Georgia woman was taken away in handcuffs after assaulting two female soldiers, including a pregnant one, who she says “got in her way” in the parking lot of a chain restaurant.
The attack happened on Saturday night at a Cheddars in Macon, Georgia. It all started when 72-year-old Judy Tucker and her homophobic son tried pulling into a handicapped spot in the parking lot, but soldiers Treasure Sharpe and Stephanie Mitchell got in their way.
Tucker (who, for the record, is not handicapped) parked elsewhere then went into the restaurant, where she became enraged with the two soldiers.
LaKeycia Ward caught the whole thing on camera and shared the video on social media, where it quickly went viral.
In the video, Tucker can be seen screaming at Sharpe. When Mitchell tries standing in front of her friend to protect her, Tucker gets even angrier and hits Sharpe in the face.
“I’m pregnant! Look at me, I’m pregnant!” Sharpe replies after being struck. “You’re pushing a pregnant lady!”
To which Tucker’s son responds, “Oh really? By her?”
Witnesses also say Tucker’s son began verbally abusing the soldiers, calling them “gay black bitches” and asking, “Does the military let lesbians serve?”
Police were called and Tucker, sobbing, was arrested. She was charged with simple battery and booked into Bibb County Jail where she was later released on bond.
Georgia law dictates that assaulting a pregnant woman is a misdemeanor of a “high and aggravated nature.” Tucker could face up to a year in prison, and/or a fine of up to $5,000 for the attack.

Give her the year and the fine.
Not only is this Georgia, but Macon. This old white racist will not suffer any serious consequences. I’ve lived here most of my, and neither LGBTQ or black people expect respect or justice.
I wouldn’t say she’s had no consequence. I saw a report from the college where she was occasionally employed to teach art… they stated she will not be asked to return again. So that’s something.
@Cylest, do you honestly believe the hateful woman is getting hers just by losing her part time job?? A vast majority of gays are lucky to even have a job without getting fired for being gay on a yearly basis. This woman knows it’s okay to beat up on anyone she feels isn’t in line with her beliefs, and probably sanctioned by her city government. Is a known fact that Georgia is a bible beating state. Georgian Senator Perdue is as antigay and Christian radical as it gets. He also uses his senate office to hold Christian radical bible studies for the Trump cabinet. It’s not only sick what this Trump Government is doing against the constitution, it’s scary. We’re in the beginning of a new American theocracy if we’re not careful. Everyone in the USA should be shouting out loud about the direction that Trump and his cronies are trying to take this country.
@Cylest, do you honestly believe that woman is getting hers just by losing her part time job?? Us gays are lucky to even have a job without getting fired for being gay on a yearly basis.
Never said anything about “getting hers”. Just stated that she was facing consequences, which have intensified since my last comment. I stand by those words.
The only person trying to draw a correlation between her punishment and the oppression of the LGBTQ community is you. I never suggested anything about fairness. <3
Odd that you’ll report a screaming match that actually had nothing to do with gays but ignore two gay been being attacked and beaten in DC. Could that be because the races are reversed in that much more serious case?
That’s actually a good point. For those that don’t understand what a hate crime is this is definitely the very definition of one.
This isn’t the only supposedly gay site covering up three dangerous attackers still on the loose in DC.
Wow, thats fked up. Ppl seem to be more violent every day
She called them lesbians. But I also note that yet again, you refuse to comment on white racism or homophobia. So telling.
I’ll comment on it as soon as you condemn black violence. After all physical harm is much worse than name calling, despite how loud 13% of the population is about one and how deafening their silence on the other is.
Yeah and the men who were assaulted in Miami, well their tormentors turned themselves in. But looking at nearly naked IG pictures of Terry Miller was what was reported on and not the men turning themselves in. I guess because no one in the office found the victims or perps sexually attractive, meant it didn’t warrant mention, but then again it’s not like the writers are even fooling anyone that they really care.
@Ummm Yeah, I condemn violence by anyone, whether they are black, white or otherwise. You still have not stated why you can never criticize white racist homophobes. Are you a racist? On top of everything else, this woman struck a soldier who is fighting for her right to be freely racist and homophobic. The soldier could easily have slapped her senseless in defense, but instead, she didn’t.
@Ummmmm Yeah, I’m black and I condemn black violence and homophobia perpetuated by black people
Now, it’s your turn to condemn white violence and homophobia perpetuated by white people.
This did have something to do with gays. The man clearly says when the soldier states that she’s pregnant, “Oh yeah, by HER?”
Yes racism and violence are wrong when committed by white people. And I have condemned both before.
Does that DC stand for District of Columbia? Surely not. Because it would be awful odd that you would live there ignore a homophobic attack on two gay men.
@DCguy It actually was the son that was saying the anti-gay and racist stuff and he wasn’t charged with anything. I’m not saying that she doesn’t Harbor the same feelings but she didn’t attack them with it. This is just a simple assault.
DCguy, I have removed your comments calling other users “trolls”. I will continue to do so.
Ummmmyeah, the fact that you think that black folk aren’t actively fighting crime and violence inside of their own community proves that you only see and hear what you want to see and hear.
In EVERY community, people are killed most by other people of their race. That is true for black people, for white people, and for literally every other color of people. (Perhaps not indigenous people.) It’s not special to black people.
The fact that black violence exists doesn’t negate racism. It doesn’t erase systemic oppression. No matter how much you want it to.
Hi Cylest Brooks,
When I use the word about those screenames trolling it is because they are multiple screenames from one of the accounts Queerty has blocked (Mo Bro).
Just my opinion, but when every posting by an account is either attacking racial minorities, attacking lgbt people on an lgbt site, or defending anti-lgbt bigotry on that same site. That fits with what I thought the definition of a troll is. I wasn’t using it as just a radom pejorative but as what I thought was an apt. description of what it is they are doing on here.
If Queerty feels that word is off limits I can probably make the same point without using it. 😉
The desperation of this account to ALWAYS change the topic when somebody white or Christian is attacking people, using anti-lgbt slurs, etc.. is ridiculous.
Your agenda is obvious.
THANK YOU. It is beyond tiresome seeing almost every single post by DC Guy calling someone a MoBro troll. Of course now he’ll think he can cleverly circumvent that by just repeating MoBro a zillion times, so please keep an eye open for that too.
DCguy… with all due respect, do you think that you see things I don’t see? Do you think I need you to point out garbage for me?
I am absolutely capable of identifying comments and accounts that are problematic, and those that are trolls. I know that Ummmm Yeah is racist and problematic. I’m fully aware, even without your cunning observations.
I see that you’ve already found a smoooooooth alternative to the word “troll” by simply citing “these screennames” or “these accounts”. So perhaps I wasn’t clear about exactly what it was that I need you to stop doing.
Stop attempting to label other commenters as less valuable than you simply because you do not like their opinion. Ummmm Yeah is a racist, but is categorically NOT a troll. I do not need for you to point out what “accounts” are problematic. I am getting paid for that job, so you’re really just doing a disservice to yourself by doing it for free.
I hope this makes it more clear.
Is that it? So the old bitty tries to use the handicap parking space and some mean words were exchanged. Hardly a hate crime.
Assault while using racial slurs and using the term Lesbian as an insult is a hate crime….and pushing of a pregnant woman in Georgia is an actual crime, too.
My point was that they started this by blocking her access to the handicap parking space. I personally would not do that. I’ve been in these situations myself. You either simply let them know that it’s handicapped or call parking enforcement.
@ShowMeGuy. Actually it was her son that was using the racist and homophobic language. This is just simple assault.
She physically attacked a pregnant woman. By trying to pretend that detail didn’t happen you are really showing your agenda.
She slapped one of them. Big whoop. Stop trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.
You have now said that assault doesn’t matter. So fine, next time you’re in a restaurant if some 72 year old comes up yelling at you and slapping you, I don’t want to hear you complain. Because according to you, it’s no problem.
Look, your agenda is glaring now. First you tried to pretend the assault didn’t happen, now you’re saying it’s no problem.
Plus she’s 72. I think I’d just let her have it at a matter as a matter of respect
Nope. She doesn’t get pass, whatever age she is. Also she struck one of the soldiers, whose serving to protect old white racist homophobes like her. She’s lucky they didn’t knock her back in to the 1970s.
Respect my eye. She should go jail old racist Beyatch
Wow. Thank God you were not Rosa Parks when that white man demanded her seat or I might still be forced to sit in the back of the bus. Bizarre how you have reversed the narrative to the pregnant woman being attacked should have respected the woman who assaulted her. That’s some ass backwards foolishness right there.
I agree with you Coreyandrew.
But are you surprised? Based upon his other comments including this one, ChrisK clearly isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer by all means…
ChrisK – “Doh!”
Really? So if Charles Manson was alive and got out of prison we should let him just do whatever he wants because he’s old?
I have FAR more sympathy for whatever handicapped person needed that space than I do for a 72 year old anti-lgbt bigot and racist.
My point was that they started this by blocking her access to the handicap parking space. I personally would not do that. You act like a vigilante and you’re going to get some blow back. You either simply just let them know that it’s handicapped or call parking enforcement.
Lastly why are you all coming down on me. All I was saying is I normally give my elders more leeway. Of course not in every case so the hypotheticals that I’m seeing are ridiculous.
No, your point seemed to be that just because some bigot had managed to live to 72 she should be allowed to break the law. Her age is irrelevant to me, and her behavior shows that she is the last person who deserves a break.
She’s clearly not handicapped, but how did the soldiers know that when she was trying to pull into the space? You’re not supposed to drive with your placard hanging from the mirror, you’re supposed to put it on after you park.
This is one area where people need to mind their own business, or at the very least wait to see if they actually do have the placard when they get out of the car. Not every disability is physically visible.
Her husband is the disabled one. He is not seen in the video.
They weren’t purposely blocking her space. They were pulling into the space next to the handicapped one, and the son of the old woman misinterpreted it. He then got out of his car and approached the women shouting obscenities and racial slurs.
This is a hate crime based on entitlement.
You’ve failed to mention that they used the N-word against these two women as well. While I think the homophobic aspect of this attack is horrible, the racism of this incidents “trumps” the homophobia.
“the racism of this incidents “trumps” the homophobia.”
@kille31 Really? You have to ask, given the vicious history of racism in our country? The horrific atrocities that African Americans suffered from the time of slavery to now? The beatings, lynchings, tearing apart of our families, segregation, discrimination, etc.
As a black, gay male, I understand both sides; racism and homophobia. But the fact is, I can hide my homosexuality. I can’t hide the color of my skin.
Because blacks are perfectly OK with homophobia Kille31, even the gay ones.
“I can hide my homosexuality. I can’t hide the color of my skin.”
True, but i just dont get why you think one “trumps” the other. Gay ppl around the world are killed, beaten, fired for being gay, do you rly think that the experience that black Americans fell can “trump” everyone else’s experiences?!
@kille31 Racism. Homophobia. They’re both reprehensible. But if you were to ask any African American, they would not equate these two. As a matter of fact they’d get downright offended. Yes it’s true that both groups face similar mistreatment, but their struggles are not quite the same. Did LGBT have to stage boycotts to be able to eat in restaurants and be treated equally as whites? Did LGBT have to drink from separate water fountains or restrooms? Did LGBT have to attend segregated schools? How many incidents of LGBT being lynched over the past 200 years? How many incidents of LGBT being gunned down by police? You mentioned that gays are killed across the world. Yes, that’s very true. But I’m really only talking about the USA, the country I live in, and throwing gay men off of buildings is definitely frowned upon here.
African Americans don’t have a monopoly on oppression in this country; there are plenty of other minority groups that are oppressed. My point is just that AA don’t equate our struggles with those of the LGBT community, for good reason.
dinard 38. These things have happend to gays in other countries and still do. South America, Jamaica, parts of Russia and many places in Africa and the Middle East.. In history and even know in some countries gays have their businesses, homes, family and lives taken from them. This happens to this day in many places across the world. There is a lot of work needed here, but this is a safer place than many places.
dinard38, really?? Let’s face it! Gays were gassed in the death camps in Germany. The list of torture and atrocities against gays are endless. It’s not automatically easy for ALL gays to conceal their orientation. One thing is for sure! – All gays have zero rights, where all blacks have all rights. I’m actually tired of black homophobia against gay whites. Both white and black gay people are equally guilty of discrimination against the other. Comparing ones struggles to the other needs to stop.
She should know better. No excuse for this behavior.
I agree. No excuse. All of this rage over a parking space. I think the issue with this lady is that it wasn’t just someone taking her parking space. It was these black women taking her parking space. How dare they? She’s in her 70s and this takes place in Macon, GA, so I’m sure she’s a product of the old Jim Crow south.
I live in Atlanta, a very progressive city. But I’m reminded over and over that once you cross over I-285 (the interstate that makes a complete loop around Atlanta), you are still in the deep south. Just last week we had an ex-commissioner of the city of Griffin, which is not far from Macon, use the N-word repeatedly in a meeting. What was the meeting about? These idiots in Griffin were voting on an proclamation to designate the month of April as Confederate History Month…something they have passed since 2010. Seriously? This year a black councilman opposed the proclamation and that’s when the old crusty white ex-commisioner made these disparaging comments.
We’ve come so far and yet still have a long way to go.
Tis happened in Macon Georgia, nothing more needs be said since it’s well known how southerners can be.
I’d like to say it’s getting better… but it’s only slightly gotten better, in that you don’t hear about it as much, but it’s still there and it doesn’t take much to find it, and I say that as a Mississippi boy raised there my whole life.
Women always do this sheit. They start trouble but then when they have to face the consequences they start crying. Its annoying. https://nestersblog2.blogspot.com/2018/04/from-fat-to-fit.html
Welcome to America..where the American Dream for too many is better defined as An American Nightmare. What these women experienced in addition to the two men arrested in Starbucks, is two too many, and that’s only the two we are aware of.
Apparently not having ordered in advance of waiting for a friend is defined as trespassing. I can’t help thinking if waiting is trespassing the police need to get to EVERY Starbucks location on the hour every hour internationally. It’s incredibly sad that as humans we don’t all want to participate in being a part of making life considerably easier. Life is hard but having to worry if you’ll be arrested for sitting or assaulted for parking, is beyond the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. The United States needs to question why these reactions continue to occur over and over. Minding your own business used to be a reasonable thing to do, but now everyone has an opinion about everyone else, and those opinions are undoubtedly nasty, unkind and destructive. No other country continues to have even close to similar concerns on a constant basis. How is it possible that anyone might still question why black men do their very best to avoid the police.? They’re told to try and avoid looking like they’re up to something, which results in their then looking like they’re up to something because they’re trying hard to look like they aren’t. Who wouldn’t be terrified and confused? The intention of police for most, whites, is protection so why are SO many stories anything but. If there is nothing in their hands, they’re arrested, if there is potentially maybe something in their hand, but we aren’t sure, they’re shot. We Caucasians appear not to understand from day 1 we were visiting, but the colour of your skin certainly shouldn’t compromise where one parks. NO one has the right to create their own ideas of doing as they please.
Life doesn’t need to be complicated, it’s made complicated. Too many unhappy miserable people somehow feel that everyone around them should be as miserable as they are, and the fact is being miserable is a choice. No one is guaranteed to live a long life, we are all mere moments away from possibly being hit by a bus, or a guy with a gun but with luck hopefully able to live a long and happy, fortunate life. Appreciating when others hold the door shouldn’t result in it being difficult to do the same. Speaking to others is not a difficult task but some react as if looking up from their phones was a request to give up their first born. GET OVER YOURSELF. “Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You”. There will still be those assholes who treat others badly, and they deserve what they get, but there is no excuse for those of us who are upright and breathing not to at least try to participate in making this an even slightly happier place to be, all it requires is a willingness to fail but very often the willingness to try.
The South is a horrible place for gay people
I lived in the South all my life, it is not much worse than in many parts of the North.
Our Cheddars closed a year ago after it became too ghetto and attracted the wrong crowd. By that I don’t mean black people, I mean gang bangers and hoes and such. So the fact that the trashy bitch is at Cheddars isn’t lost on me.
Notice how they tried to play the victim when they realized the person wasn’t going to drop the camera. Tried to claim that the two women had attacked their mother?
This is why police forces have tried to prevent people from filming, because if that footage hadn’t been taken, they would have arrested the two soldiers and let the 72 year old who attacked them press charges.
Exactly. This is why I record… especially if black folk are involved.
I deleted his comment.
Just a question, the account Ummmmyeah stated :
Because blacks are perfectly OK with homophobia Kille31, even the gay ones.”
Isn’t there a rule against labeling an entire group pejoratively?
Just wanted to check, thank you!
Any news on this?
One would have to visit a Cracker Barrel to meet a woman of this caliber… It’s the “angry face” – which probable goes to a fundamentalist church on Sunday. And one who voted for Trump. He’s the one making these incidents occur more frequently, because he insinuates that “it’s ok”.
I was wondering what prompted this confrontation. Apparently, it’s something akin to road rage in a parking lot — not even a “stolen” parking space. The homophobic son of this 72 year old hurls racist and homophobic remarks at two female soldiers. If the son had any decency he would have restrained his mother’s behavior. Obviously the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
