Bodycam footage shows a Florida deputy berating the “selfishness” of two women who tried to score a COVID-19 vaccine by dressing up as “grannies.”
The clip from the Orange County Convention Center last week shows the pair, dressed up with gloves and bonnets, after they were caught trying to pull off the self-serving stunt to get their second dose, WHIO-TV reported Wednesday.
“You know what you have done? You’ve stolen a vaccine from somebody that needs it more than you,” the deputy scolds the women.
“And now you’re not going to get your second one. So, that’s a whole waste of time we just wasted here on this,” he continues.
“And we’re not even sure if they’re going to press charges against you and take you to jail right now. So, we’re at that point right here. But just for your selfishness of stealing the vaccine.”
The unidentified women ultimately dodged arrests, but are seen on the footage being warned that they would be busted if they didn’t leave or if they return for the inoculation site.
“You’re not going to get a vaccine,” the deputy tells them. “So, you’re going to have to wait your turn.”
The women then apologize and leave the vaccination site.
