TOWSON, Md. (AP) — A Jewish Maryland state legislator says a man yelled “Heil Hitler” at her while she was campaigning.

Del. Shelly Hettleman tells the Baltimore Sun that the man stopped his car and screamed the phrase at her Monday morning. Hettleman, a Baltimore County Democrat, says the man also yelled, “You don’t represent us” and uttered several expletives.

Hettleman’s husband and campaign manager both witnessed the scene. Baltimore County Del. Dana Stein was campaigning nearby and saw someone yelling at Hettleman. But she says she couldn’t decipher what was said over the sound of traffic.

Hettleman says she plans to report the incident to county police. Police spokesman Cpl. Shawn Vinson says it will then be reported as a bias incident to state police, who record hate crimes and incidents across Maryland.
