FAIRFIELD, CA (KCRA) — Cell phone video shows a frightening fight over a handicapped parking space in a Fairfield, California Walmart parking lot.

Susan Fowler started recording after a 64-year-old man with disabilities was pulled from his car, put in a choke-hold and punched.

“It was horrible to watch, you know,” Fowler said. “Justice needs to be served.”

Her video shows the man on the ground and the attacker yelling at a few Fairfield Walmart shoppers who tried to intervene.

Chris Bennett is one of them.

“By that time, he had already unfortunately got the guy out on the ground — slammed him on the ground,” Bennett recalled. “I was able to get in between them, push him off of him. He went to kick him, I pushed him back.”

The victim was arguing with the attacker’s girlfriend because she parked in the disabled spot he needed. Witnesses said she didn’t have a placard.

“He was yelling to the lady, ‘I’m handicapped. This is for handicapped people.’ And the lady was just irate, and she was cursing at him and screaming, ‘I don’t give a “f” what you are,’” Fowler said.

Fairfield police hope someone will recognize the attacker who will face battery charges when captured.
