UPDATED:

Charges were dropped Thursday against a Chicago man accused of attacking a woman who gained national attention last month for going on a pro-Donald Trump tirade inside a Michaels craft store.

Ramiz Bajwa, 29, was accused of entering the woman’s apartment building in Boystown on Dec. 20 and then pushing her and calling her names, a local Fox News affiliate reported.

A judge on Thursday dropped the battery charge against Mr. Bajwa after the woman failed to appear in court, CWBChicago reported.

A video of the woman, identified in reports as Jennifer Boyle, went viral last month showing her berating black employees at a Michaels store because they asked her to pay $1 for a reusable bag, Raw Story reported. She called one employee an “animal” and claimed she was discriminated against because she’s white.



“Why don’t you shut your face. And I voted for Trump, so there,” Ms. Boyle yelled. “And look who won. And look who won. And look who won.”

A second video later surfaced showing the same woman yelling at Peet’s Coffee and Tea employees and calling one floor manager a “bitch.”

Ms. Boyle has reportedly moved out of her Boystown residence.
