Some people will do anything to save a buck -- even wave a gun at a Walmart employee.
Officials in Crawfordville, Fla., say when Mary Frances Alday, 61, was told she couldn't use an Internet coupon at Walmart, she got angry. Real angry.
She allegedly called the manager who denied the dollar-off coupon “a bitch," and then intentionally stuck her with a shopping cart, according to The Smoking Gun.
Alday was escorted out of Walmart, but she went to her car, grabbed a loaded Smith & Wesson .38 Special and came back in the store and threatened employees with it, WTXL-TV reported.
She left the scene, but was later arrested during a traffic stop, and reportedly had to be tased to get her out of her 2011 Ford Escape. She also allegedy hit the investigating officer several times, according to the arrest report obtained by The Smoking Gun.
Alday faces four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of battery, one count of battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest with violence.
Alday's incident wasn't the only bit of alleged gun violence that took place at a Florida Walmart this past week.
Police in Orange City arrested Jose Martinez, 35, for allegedly shooting at least five bullets at a car driven by Eddie McKee, an alleged shoplifter trying to escape from Walmart parking lot.
He said McKee, 42, tried to run him over, according to ClickOrlando.com.
