OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An angry woman from Oklahoma City is accused of slapping a nail salon worker and punching and threatening another with a pocket knife because they were speaking Vietnamese.
43-year-old Candace Nicole Muzny, a former NASCAR driver, was arrested for assault with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a police officer after the incident Sunday evening at the Creative Nail salon.
Muzny was getting a pedicure when one employee began speaking Vietnamese to another, at which point Muzny began yelling at the workers and slapped one in the face, according to a police report. When another employee tried to call police, she pulled out a pocket knife and punched him in the face.
When a police officer tried to take Muzny into custody, the woman’s dog began biting the officer’s leg, and Muzny struck the officer behind the ear with the pocket knife, leaving him with a small cut, the report said.
Muzny was released from Oklahoma County jail on Monday on $20,000 bail.
