Woman stabs man in buttock in McDonald's drive-through, deputies say

A road rage incident that erupted Thursday morning in the drive-through line at a McDonald's in Riverview came to a head when a woman stabbed a man in the buttock, according to Hillsborough County sheriff's officials.

The trouble began about 9:15 a.m. when Rebecca Simmons, 45, tried to cut in front of Mohammad Abukhder, 35, in the drive-through at 13118 U.S. 301 S, authorities said. Abukhder got mad and shouted obscenities at Simmons, deputies said.

That, in turn, angered Simmons, who got out of her car and rammed a knife into the hood of Abukhder's 2000 Honda Civic, deputies said. The damage was estimated at $200.

Abukhder got out of his car and walked to Simmon's car, intending to remove the key so she could not drive away, deputies said. Simmons followed, and when they both arrived at her car, she stabbed Abukhder once in the rear end, deputies said. He suffered a small puncture wound that did not require medical attention, authorities said.

Sheriff's deputies arrived at the McDonald's soon after. Simmons was arrested and taken to the Orient Road Jail, where she was booked on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and criminal mischief with property damage. She was later released on $8,000 bail.
