22-year-old Kalie Rutledge punched Xiaolin Shi for speaking Chinese on the light rail.
The hell? People apparently can't even speak Chinese in public in Arizona without the threat of violence. In Tempe, a woman was arrested for assaulting two students after she heard them speak Mandarin on the light rail.
Police say 22-year-old Kalie Rutledge was riding on the Metro Light Rail on May 20 when she heard Arizona State University student Xiaolin Shi speaking to a friend in Mandarin. She apparently took issue with this.
Rutledge reportedly told them, "I don't speak Chinese, shut the fuck up!" and "Bitch, go f—ing back to China."
