Florida couple Kayla Davis and her boyfriend Darien Elwin were celebrating Elwin’s 20th birthday Saturday, May 9, when the decided they would stop into George & Dragon British Pub in Orlando for dinner since they had coupon.
Davis who turned 21 a few months ago, asked the owner of the pub, Kim Bruns for a drink recommendation. Bruns made her a Kamikaze but when she handed Davis the drink, she also handed her a warning.
“As soon as she gave it to me, she said, ‘I’m watching you, and you better not give any drinks to minors,'” Davis told the Orlando Sentinel. “It felt weird and racist a little bit.”
The comment and another employee constantly asking if she was “OK” after Bruns remark made the couple feel uncomfortable so they decided to return the drink, which Davis says she never touched, and leave.
That’s when things reportedly turned into a scene out of Pulp Fiction.
According to the couple and police records viewed by the Sentinel, Bruns returned from the barroom toting a .357-caliber Magnum Colt Python and yelling profanities, adding that the couple couldn’t leave. Bruns reportedly yelled racial slurs, threw a glass at Davis and noted that she would shoot the couple and they could “Call Jesse Jackson.”
Elwin tried to cool things down and even offered to pay for the drink according to the Sentinel. But Burns wanted no part of the couple’s money reportedly telling them, “I’ll shoot you too if I have to. It’s legal.”
According to the Sentinel, Bruns told police that there was no confrontation between her and the couple. She also refused to show the officers surveillance video.
When reached by the Sentinel, Bruns claimed, “It’s all false accusations” and added, “I have black people who work for me. I have never used a racial slur.”
Bruns was charged with “aggravated assault with a firearm and aggravated assault,” the Sentinel reports.
During her arrest Saturday, she reportedly told an officer: “I can’t believe you would take those [racist profanity] side over mine.”
