Yamba woman pushes zombie, gets charged with battery
Yamba resident Prue Elizabeth Harvey faces a serious battery charge in Florida after allegedly pushing over a female cyclist during the popular Zombie Bike Ride.
Harvey allegedly yelled "fall bitch" before shoving the 68-year-old female cyclist to the ground in Key West on Sunday, the Miami-Herald reports.
Harvey, 32, was in Key West to attend a wedding. She was locked up in Monroe County jail after her arrest on a felony battery charge.
In Florida, battery on a person aged 65 and older is automatically classed as a serious felony charge. Harvey is accused of running through the cyclists, who wear zombie costumes and paint their faces and bodies for the popular annual 6km bike ride.
She allegedly gave riders dirty looks before shoving Linda Malcolm to the ground. Ms Malcolm suffered a scrape on her left knee.
Ms Malcolm's daughter allegedly chased Harvey to the rear of a church and police were called.
Police said Harvey told them she had been drinking and could not remember anything past 1pm on Sunday.
The alleged battery happened at about 7.20pm.
