GALLATIN COUNTY, Mont. (CIRCA) - A woman was arrested on Election Day for allegedly yelling racist remarks at a voter waiting in line at a Montana polling place, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports.

Brian Mango, 22, was waiting in line when a white woman who appeared drunk reportedly started weaving in and out of the line.

Mango, who is black, said 53-year-old Wendy Bies told him, “Go back where you came from.”

He replied and said his family came to the U.S. as slaves and that his mother was a refugee from Laos.

Bies then allegedly said all "his people" wanted free stuff, according to Mango.

The Chronicle reported that this made Mango feel uncomfortable.

A man who was several people behind Mango in line recorded the whole incident on his phone.

Bies was booked on the misdemeanor charge of obstructing a police officer.
