A video called “Man Smacks the Soul Out of Girl on the NY Subway,” quickly went viral after it was uploaded to YouTube on Saturday, capturing more than 3.8 million views by Wednesday afternoon.
In the video, a woman (Danay Howard) taunts a man, Jorge Pena, for wearing an 8-Ball jacket, saying, “You got a bum [a**] 8-ball jacket that came out in 1990. Just get your money up, simple.”
She then hits him in the head, spurring Pena to “smack the soul out of the girl.”
Everyone was charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct, while Howard was charged with felony assault for using a shoe as a weapon in the assault. Charges were dropped against Pena.
