DEVELOPING: Woman Dumps Popcorn on 2-Year-Old Girl During Movie

A man and woman in a New York City suburb were arrested Friday after the woman dumped a container of popcorn on a 2-year-old who talked during a showing of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” police said.

Authorities arrested Keri Karman, 25, and Charles Karman, 61, who were both charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

A 28-year-old mother had taken her young daughter to a movie theater in Levittown, Long Island. When the little girl asked for some popcorn during the movie, a woman sitting next to the girl allegedly “verbally attempted to quiet” the 2-year-old.

The girl’s mother told the woman “not to talk to her daughter. At which point the woman allegedly started screaming and cursing at the pair before covering the girl’s mouth with her hand. The woman then allegedly proceeded to dump popcorn over the 2-year-old’s head and hit her with the empty container, police said.

A doctor examined the 2-year-old after she said her head hurt and determined that she had a contusion, police said. Along with their charges, the Karmans were issued appearance tickets, police said.
