Woman’s temper tantrum at store caught on video
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A woman caught on camera having what she calls a temper tantrum says it’s not what you think.
The video shows Joyce Alfred knocking over jewelry cases and throwing punches at the 69-year-old owner and co-workers.
But she says she felt threatened and was only protecting herself.
She claims she went to the beauty supply store to return 12-dollar shoes, but that the staff was being rude, so she knocked over a mannequin.
When she tried to leave she says they tried to stop her.
Alfred says she is the one who was attacked. She says the owner took her purse and keys and that's why she knocked her down, to get them back.
Alfred admits the video looks bad, but she says she's the one that filed a police report.
Police officers are investigating.
