Folks, she and her son (her "spitting image?") got arrested...
Infamous ‘Spitting Lady’ finally arrested by cops
The spit has finally hit the fan for the Upper East Side’s infamous sputum slinger.
The homeless woman, known as "The Spitting Lady of 77th Street” – along with her 44-year-old son – were both arrested Thursday morning, law enforcement sources told The Post.
The 65-year-old woman, whom residents call "Susan,” and her son were picked up on E. 78th Street between 1st and 2nd avenues just before 7 a.m., sources said. Charges were pending.
Their full names were not immediately released.
The woman has been dousing locals with her saliva for years, according to fed up residents.
And she’s become such a nuisance, that an online petition was started demanding Mayor Bill de Blasio and local councilmen Ben Kallos and Daniel Garodnick take action.
"For years there has been a woman who has been wandering the streets of the upper east side who screams, yells and spits on people,” the petition reads.
"Pedestrians see her on a daily basis, and despite numerous calls to police, the public was told to turn a blind eye. This woman is not only a nuisance, but she is a threat as she is assaulting people vilely with saliva. She mainly spits on children, while also hissing and yelling at them,” the petition continues.
According to the petition, the woman’s son recently joined his mother in harassing residents.
"He is a tall man, who also yells at pedestrians, and serves as her bodyguard,” says the petition, which has been signed by more than 1,470 people.
When confronted by The Post last week, the homeless woman shouted, "I’m calling the cops! I know my rights! I live in the streets!”
