A woman’s claims she was attacked for taking too long checking out of a Kroger grocery store is now in doubt after video show’s she purposely poured her drink on the man behind her in line. Megan Wilson of Memphis, Tennessee admits that it did take about 20 minutes for her to pay for her goods because she was using discount coupons for many of them. She says the man behind her was verbally abusive for holding the line up, and when she “accidentally” spiller her drink on him, he savagely attacked her. But the store’s surveillance camera tells a different story.
The footage shows Wilson purposely throwing her drink on the man, who then grabs her. According to Wilson, the man then slammed her head into her cart, but what actually happened is unclear as the man and Wilson move off camera. Police say Wilson had a small scratch on her head for which she refused medical treatment at the scene. Afterwards, however, she told WREG she had a possible cracked rib, a hip strain, bruises and a knot on her head.
Wilson says she wants Kroger to step up and protect its customers and also wants “you know, justice,” and for the man to “pay for what he did.” She has not, however, commented since the new video came to light. Police would still like to question the man in the video, who fled the scene in a Ford F-150 pickup truck.
