Customer Threats Cause Seattle Barista to Smash Customer’s Windshield With Hammer

A South Seattle barista used a hammer to smash a customer’s windshield after he allegedly threatened her and the coffee stand’s customers. The customer, who entered the drive-thru and demanded a refund over pricing, crossed the line when he allegedly threw his drinks back at the owner, Emma Lee. The verbal altercation escalated further when the customer said, “nobody’s going to miss you,” making Lee feel threatened. Lee explained that disrespect and violence are two different things, and the violence was where the line was crossed.

Customers attempted to talk the man down for about 10 minutes, but the verbal altercation escalated further when the customer allegedly said, “nobody’s going to miss you,” making Lee feel threatened. He then threw his drinks back at Lee as she closed her drive-thru window.

With a hammer in hand, Lee gave the customer’s windshield one swing, shattering a portion of the windshield on the driver’s side. He drove off, but did not leave the area until police arrived and requested him to leave the premises. No arrests have been made as of this reporting.
