FARMINGTON, Maine - Police arrested a woman after they say she punched and kicked a female rival in the checkout line of a Walmart. God knows I have wanted to do this on occasion whenever someone in front of me pulls out their checkbook after they just watched their fifty items get rung up in slow motion, but this was more of a domestic issue.
According to reports, 32-year-old Sarah Hanson and her husband were shopping in Walmart when Hanson found her husband talking with another woman inside the store. Hanson ran up to the woman and let out a string of obscenities before leaving the store with her husband.
Outside in the parking lot, Hanson and her husband got into an argument that ended with Hanson going back inside the Walmart where she found the other woman standing in the checkout line. Witnesses say Hanson called the woman a name before punching her in the face. After the woman fell to the ground, Hanson allegedly began kicking her before leaving the scene.
The victim wasn’t seriously inured and was treated at the hospital. Hanson turned herself in to police a few hours later and was charged with aggravated elevated assault and domestic violence assault. She was released on a $1,000 cash bail that I bet her husband paid.
No word on the history between the two women, but one report used the word “rival” so I am assuming that the victim may possibly be an ex-love interest of the husband. Although, based on my experience with jealous girlfriends not wanting to share this delicious piece of man-candy, it could have very well been a 65-year-old Walmart worker offering Hanson’s husband free samples of Sara Lee honey ham.Tags: Assault, Beating, Crime, Maine, Sarah Hanson, WalMart
