WINTER HAVEN (FOX 13) -

A 68-year-old Winter Haven man is facing battery charges after apparently punching a woman in the face in the McDonald's drive-thru line.

The entire incident was caught on tape by someone who was behind Howard Wilson's vehicle.

Wilson was apparently irate after a vehicle cut in front of him. After ordering, Wilson got out of the vehicle, walked up to the side of the other vehicle, and struck Brittani Thomas in the face.

Witnesses say they also heard Wilson yelling profanities and racial slurs.

Wilson left the scene and went home. Officers confronted him about the incident and showed him the video.

He was booked into the Polk County Jail on battery charges.
