The kicker: The coupon was only for $1 off. Mary Frances Alday reportedly got upset and started “verbally abusing” the assistant manager while being escorted out of the store Friday; she also hit the employee with a shopping cart, according to her arrest report. Then she allegedly went to her car and retrieved a handgun, which she promptly started waving at four employees outside.
She got back in her car and left the scene, but was soon stopped by authorities. Asked if she had a gun, Alday replied, “Yes, I have a concealed weapons permit, and you are not taking my gun,” USA Today reports.
Oh, but they did: When Alday refused to get out of her SUV and started reaching for something, she got Tasered twice and eventually pulled from the vehicle, handcuffed, arrested, and hit with quite a few charges. She’s currently in jail.
All for a dollar. The high price of greed and depravity demonstrated again.
