The store had to be shut down for cleaning for two hours after 33-year-old Theresa Monique Jefferson (pictured above) followed the unidentified victim who she had been feuding with for some time into the store and doused her with Pine Sol and bleach (thank goodness there was no ammonia handy…). Nineteen other people at the store were also sent to area hospitals after complaining of watery eyes and other injuries. Included in that total are one person was taken to the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins Hospital for treatment and three Walmart employees who were being treated for respiratory problems.
After the incident, Jefferson turned herself into authorities and has reportedly been charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, theft under $100, and malicious destruction of property. She is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $350,000 bail.
According to NY Daily News, Walmart spokeswoman Dianna Gee told The Sun, “This is obviously not the type of behavior that we would expect from people at our stores and we want to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused other customers.”
I can only imagine what type of foolishness led up to this incident. All I can say is, ladies, he’s just not worth it.
I also couldn’t help but think about the hilariously true “People of Walmart” YouTube video. Apparently Walmart shoppers really are a special breed.
