Bartender tells jurors about injuries she received in 2007 beating by cop
(MCT) — CHICAGO — In the video of her 2007 beating by an off-duty cop, petite bartender Karolina Obrycka stands up to Anthony Abbate as he charges at her, determined to get behind the bar. After Abbate has tossed her down and pummeled her, the video shows Obrycka continuing to serve drinks and finishing her shift at Jesse’s Short Stop Inn in Chicago.
But Obrycka on Monday told a federal jury that she still suffers back and neck pain as a result of the attack nearly six years ago. Testifying in an even voice that at times hesitated but never broke, she said she also suffers panic attacks that cause her jaw to lock.
