A Pinellas County man has been arrested on charges that he spit food into a woman’s mouth after a road rage incident.

David Paul Wipperman, 61, of Largo, was arrested Thursday on charges of felony battery and burglary of an occupied vehicle.

According to arrest reports from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, Wipperman got into a road rage incident with a woman at about 5:40 p.m. on Oct. 29.

Wipperman got out of his Chevy S-10 truck and approached the woman in the other vehicle, a 2014 Kia sedan. The woman rolled down her window and apologized to Wipperman, at which point he spit food he was chewing at her, arrest reports state.

“The food struck the victim in the face and entered (her) mouth,” a report states.

Wipperman then opened the driver’s side door, screamed at the woman and stuck his finger in her face, arrest reports state.

The location where the incident occurred was redacted from arrest reports. It was unclear why it took several weeks for an arrest to be made in the case.

Wipperman was being held in the Pinellas County Jail Friday in lieu of $12,500 bail.
