Slidell Police arrest 4 following fight in Walmart
SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) - The Slidell Police Department has arrested four women following a large fight inside of a Walmart.
Police say the fight happened around 1 p.m. Saturday at the Walmart located at 39142 Natchez Drive.
According to police, they received several calls about the large fight in the produce section. Callers also told police that some of the people were using pepper spray.
The fight involved more than 10 people and two of the people involved in the fight were taken to a nearby hospital for minor injuries.
Police later arrested four women in connection with the fight. Police have charged 19-year-old Alexis Neal of Slidell, 38-year-old Majara Walker of Slidell, 17-year-old Seanice Warren of St. Louis, MO and 22-year-old Morgan Walker of Slidell with disturbing the peace by fighting.
Investigators say the fight began due to a previous conflict between two different families. By chance, the two groups encountered each other in Walmart.
Videos of the fight quickly went viral Saturday afternoon following the incident.
Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal released a statement saying, "This type of behavior is disgusting and unacceptable. This does not portray the character of the majority of our citizens here in Slidell. These women should be ashamed of themselves for doing this in the middle of one of the busiest retail stores in our city. Let this be a clear message that this will not be tolerated."
