A video of two women fighting in an Indiana Walmart has gone viral, and police are investigating the incident to determine if charges will be filed and if child services should be involved.
What makes the incident, which quickly turned from a verbal confrontation into a violent brawl, so disturbing is the involvement of a boy who Fox59 reports is 6 years old.
The boy’s mother was one of the women allegedly involved in the fight, and the boy can be seen hitting the other woman and throwing a shampoo bottle as the women wrestle in the aisle.
The Smoking Gun reports that the incident may have started over one woman questioning the need of another woman to use a motorized shopping cart.
The women could face charges ranging from disorderly conduct to child endangerment.
