Woman Throws Temper Tantrum in Walmart


A woman was arrested after throwing a temper tantrum in a Fayetteville Walmart. While searching for prophylactics, April D. Barrow started cursing, hitting an employee, running naked through the store and urinating on the floor.

Authorities were dispatched to the Walmart location over a public indecency call. An officer arrived at the scene to assist a fellow officer who arrived earlier and had his Taser pointed at Barrow. Barrow was handcuffed and placed in the back 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.

“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,” Fayetteville Police Department spokesperson Ann Marie Burdett said.

A store employee was able to escort Barrow out of the building, but she continued to scream and hit the door prior to officers arriving. She also put her clothes back on outside of the store.

The 40-year-old was charged with two counts of simple battery, public indecency and disorderly conduct.
