A Dunkin' Donuts customer is accused of going way too far in trying to enforce an indoor mask mandate in Massachusetts.

Dion Milsap, 23, is accused of throwing a cup of hot coffee at a man who wasn't wearing a mask inside a Dunkin' store on Harvard Street in Brookline on Thursday morning.

Police said the drama all started when Milsap called out a 56-year-old man next to him in line who wasn't wearing a mask. The maskless man pulled his shirt over his face to deescalate the tension but that didn't work, the police report said.

The two went back and forth, and then the 56-year-old man said he felt something hit his legs and realized that Milsap had tossed his coffee at him, police said.

But Milsap's lawyer, Ian Henchy, said this incident "has been blown way out of proportion" and that his client is homeless and was supposed to start a new job that day.
