Angry shoppers square off in pre-Black Friday scuffle at Palmdale Walmart, authorities say
Posted by Staff

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Anna Stebbins pulled up to the Walmart in Palmdale on Thursday night and came upon a pre-Black Friday scene she had heard about before, but had never experienced at the megastore:

Hordes of shoppers were shouting in each other’s faces in the parking lot, and a crowd of more than 100 people gathered around them with their phones fixed on the confrontation.

Stebbins and about seven other deputies — the Palmdale station’s entire Thanksgiving evening shift, by her estimate — stepped out of their patrol cars and tried to break up the fracas.

“It was a really crazy scene,” she said. Facebook iconFacebook Fark iconFark Furl iconFurl
