Man Charged with Terroristic Threat for Allegedly Coughing on Grocery Store Worker

A man has been charged with a terroristic threat after allegedly coughing on a grocery store employee while saying that he had the coronavirus over the weekend.

This individual reportedly committed this assault at a Wegman’s in New Jersey. 50-year-old George Falcone of Freehold, N.J. is the suspect. He is also being charged with obstructing administration of law or other governmental function and harassment following the incident.

The incident took place on Sunday after a Wegman’s employee allegedly requested for Falcone to stand further away from her while she was preparing food. This reportedly offended Falcone, who leaned into her and purposefully coughed while facetiously saying that he had coronavirus while laughing. He faces up to seven years in prison and a fine up to $26,000 for his alleged actions.
