Lady Chokes Walmart Greeter, Daughter Threatens to Blow Up the Store (Updated)


Update II: Toni Duncan and daughter Ashley Jackson were sentenced last week for their Walmart escapades. To recap, mom chocked a 71-year-old Walmart greeter, bragged to her daughter about "choking the cracker," and the daughter threw a fit of her own, threatening to blow up the store.

The judge presiding over the case dished out 120 days in jail with 105 suspended for Duncan; she also ordered the 15-day jail sentence to be served immediately. Jackson received 30 days in jail with 27 suspended.

“I am appalled that someone would choke a person 71 years of age,” the judge said, according to the Chronicle Telegram.

In addition, mom was ordered to stay away from Walmart for five years so, head's up Target, Big Lots, and other big-box stores. She may be coming your way.


Update: Both women — mother Toni Duncan and pregnant daughter Ashley Jackson — pleaded not guilty to charges yesterday. The judge ordered them not to shop together, and specifically not to shop at the Walmart where their alleged tirade took place. That last bit shouldn't be a problem — a Walmart spokesman says the duo have been banned from all Walmarts. (Morning Journal)
