According to Key West Keynoter, the incident, which took place on nearby Smathers Beach, occurred at approximately 5 p.m. on March 5.

The instigator, 20-year-old Cassilyn Clayton, reportedly reprimanded 21-year-old spring break visitor Madison Pelfrey when she caught her improperly disposing of trash.
