We already know what you’re thinking, but for once this madness didn’t happen in Florida.
A mother and son did the absolute most in a Wisconsin Walmart and now they’re going to jail.
Officers with Eau Claire Police Department responded to reports of a theft in progress at the shopping center around 8:30 p.m. Friday, where they found 46-year-old Lisa Smith “screaming in the entryway” and chasing after her loose canine, authorities said in a statement.
Shoppers and Walmart employees told responding officers the dog, Bo, was not wearing a leash when Smith arrived and started running up to customers while his owner “erratically started pulling apart store displays and placing them in her cart.”
Smith was asked to leave the store, but continued to cause trouble in the parking lot, where she performed a series of karate moves. Bo meanwhile, attempted to escape the Walmart with a stolen treat — a box of Jiffy Cornbread Muffin mix.
Her 25-year-old son, identified by officers as Benny Vann, was also “in the store causing problems,” police said. He made his way to the back of the Walmart and stripped down, exposing himself to other customers.
Vann grabbed some clothing items off a nearby rack and tried to make a run for it. At one point he attempted to run down an officer with his scooter.
Responding police “physically” stopped the scooter and Vann was arrested for lewd and lascivious behavior, disorderly conduct and retail theft.
His mother was also taken into custody, but not before she attempted to kick out the window of a squad car. Smith is facing charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and misdemeanor bail jumping.
“Bo was caught by officers in the store and brought to the Humane Association. The dog was not charged for theft,” authorities quipped. “We issued him a warning for the theft.”
Clearly drugs were involved.
