SANTA MONICA (CNS) - An 80-year-old Los Angeles man was cited for battery after he shouted racial slurs at a black woman and the two fought in the parking lot of the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Campus, it was reported today.
Police arrived at the scene of the Tuesday night altercation within a minute of getting the call.
Video of the incident showed Frederic Allen Shinerock shouting a racial slur at the woman and telling her ``she didn't belong there,'' and to ``go back to South LA.'' The video showed the man and woman taking wild swings at each other and trying to kick each other as an officer attempted to calm the situation.
Shinerock was cited by campus police and released.
SMC Superintendent/President Kathryn E. Jeffery said the school ``prides itself on inclusivity and diversity'' and they ``will take immediate and evident action to reinforce to our students, college community, and guests that there is no room for hate at Santa Monica College.''
The Santa Monica City Attorney's Office will review the case and determine if further action is warranted.
