SOUTH UNION TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) – State police are calling it a case of shopping cart rage.
A Uniontown woman is facing harassment and disorderly conduct charges after she attacked a Markleysburg woman in an apparent dispute over a shopping cart outside a store in South Union Township.
It happened Dec. 6, a the Walmart Supercenter.
Troopers say the incident happened when Samantha Miller of Markleysburg took an empty shopping cart that had been used by Stacey Marie Lewellen and began to enter the store.
Police said Lewellen “became enraged” and took the cart from Miller.
Miller then went to an area where the carts are collected and retrieved a different cart and proceeded to attempt to enter the store, police said.
Police said that Lewellen, who officers described as “still enraged” then “ran down” Miller, pushed a shopping cart into her back and then jumped onto Miller’s back and punched her in the face.
Lewellen will face a summary hearing for the citations at a later date.
