Fight over social distancing at Colorado Springs Walmart caught on camera

Walmart brawl

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- A brawl broke out inside a Walmart in Colorado Springs this past weekend, and one of the women can be heard in a now-viral video yelling at the other for not being six feet apart.

The violent outburst, recorded by Brianna Carroll, erupted Friday inside the Walmart on Platte Ave. and has since been making the rounds on social media.

It shows two women getting physical and throwing punches. Carroll says she was walking through the store and had only been there a few minutes when she heard the screams and decided to press record.

"It originally started with social distancing. The lady in front told the lady behind her to step back and she wasn't six feet and pushed her cart back and then the lady pushed the other cart back. The first lady started throwing the other lady's stuff off the conveyor belt," Carroll said.

Colorado Springs police say 60-year-old Laura Barr was arrested for 3rd-degree assault for punching another woman over the use of the conveyor belt. Although they don't believe social distancing was the main problem, cellphone footage shows a woman tell the other she wasn't "six feet away," before the other walked away.

"I don't know if the lady in the blue had a physical reason not to be wearing a mask, but she wasn't even wearing a mask in regards to her complaining about the other lady not being six feet," she said.

KRDO has not been able to hear their side of the story.

"In my opinion, the one in the purple shirt should have been further back, but the one in the blue shirt started it all in my opinion," Carroll said.

Carroll says the chaos lasted a few minutes before getting broken up.

  1. To tell you the truth, I would have stayed further than six feet away from both of those fat b1tches .

  2. Being one of the people that MEDICALLY CAN’T wear a mask (I do carry a Dr.’s release with me at all times), I can understand the concern of the woman in front. I try to ensure there is at least 6 feet for my own protection. THAT BEING SAID, she should have “politely” asked, then moved forward to open the distance. If that doesn’t work, then ask the cashier to call a manager, at that point, I am going to tie up the lane until the manager gets there. Remember, the transaction isn’t over until you complete payment. I may have to call someone because I forgot my pin. DARN… How many wrong numbers can you apologize for calling before the person grabs their stuff and gets out of line… It’s amazing what we forget when we get frustrated…

    Closing the distance, and getting into a fight, ensured the exchange of bodily fluids, because there are no masks on either of them at that point. Dumarse award given to both of them.

  3. Both there no doubt with their EBT cards for their daily ghetto salads (pork rinds and diet soda) while not wearing mandatory masks and then trying to make physical distancing an issue. The only thing missing is their fake “service dogs.”
