A woman searching for prophylactics at the Fayetteville Walmart turned that search into a tirade that included running through the store cursing, hitting an employee, taking off her clothes and urinating on the floor. The items she sought were left behind as she was escorted to jail.
April D. Barrow, 40, was charged with two counts of simple battery, public indecency and disorderly conduct, according to Fayette County Jail records.
Fayetteville Police Department spokesperson Ann Marie Burdett said officers on April 29 at approximately 6:38 a.m. were dispatched to the Walmart at the Fayette Pavilion on a public indecency call.
The responding officer arrived at the front entrance of Walmart to assist a fellow officer already on the scene who had his Taser pointed at Barrow, who was handcuffed and placed in the rear seat of a patrol car while officers investigated the situation.
“Through the investigation, officers learned Barrow entered Walmart and began asking employees for prophylactics. Barrow also used profanity and threw items while running around the store,” said Burdett. “A witness/employee told police Barrow allegedly struck her multiple times in the arm with a closed fist. Witnesses reported to police that Barrow took her clothes off and urinated on the floor.”
Burdett said a store employee walked Barrow out of the building, with the employee saying that Barrow continued to scream and hit on the door.
Barrow put her clothes on outside the store and prior to the officers arriving, Burdett added, noting that Barrow’s conduct inside the store was observed by officers on video surveillance footage.
