A Sunday evening brawl over a cart at the Cordova Walmart ended with one woman being transported to Baptist Memorial Hospital in noncritical condition.
Police found the female customer on the ground with bruises and crying. A store manager, who called for police assistance, told officers he was stacking items when he heard a commotion. He then noticed the two women on the ground and tried to separate them.
Other employees reported the fight began when the customer came to the female employee with whom the fight started and asked about a cart. The employee reportedly told the woman that if no carts were present, other customers might be using them.
The witnesses said the woman became angry at that point and asked for a manager before punching the employee, who punched back. The melee ensued as customers in the busy store watched.
