Rex Howard Gomoll, 68, of Holly, Michigan, was arrested on assault charges for wiping his nose on an employee’s shirt after being instructed to wear a mask in order to shop inside the store.
Gomoll responded by saying,
“Here, I’ll just use this as a mask.”
Holly Police Chief Jerry Nash said Gomoll entered the store on Saturday without a mask—even after an executive order enforced people in public places to wear masks at all times in the wake of Covid-19.
According to CNN, Gomoll has been charged with misdemeanor assault and battery. Newly released footage shows Gomoll wiping his nose and face on the employee’s shirt, leaving behind bodily fluids.
