Woman Pepper-Sprays Wal-Mart Shoppers
The LA Times is saying that a woman pepper-sprayed about twenty shoppers at Wal-Mart yesterday so she could get to the sale-priced items.
Authorities are searching for a woman accused of pepper-spraying other shoppers Thursday night at the Wal-Mart in Porter Ranch so that she could grab more discounted merchandise.Twenty customers, including children, were hurt in the 10:10 p.m. incident, officials said.Shoppers complained of minor skin and eye irritation and sore throats."This was customer-versus-customer 'shopping rage,'" said Los Angeles Police Lt. Abel Parga.The woman used the spray in more than one area of the Wal-Mart "to gain preferred access to a variety of locations in the store," said Los Angeles Fire Capt. James Carson."She was competitive shopping," he said.Black Friday's sales began at the Wal-Mart at 10 p.m. and featured door-buster sales on toys, including $5 Bratz dolls, $10 Wii video games and $29 tricycles.

The police have said the lady could be charged with felony battery, which raises the interesting question of charges against the UC Davis cop who committed the same offense against a bunch of students.
