Just your typical day at Walmart when chaos errupted on a Wisconsin Walmart store Wednesday night after a karate-performing mother, her naked son, and their belligerent dog shoplifted and ran amuck in the store.
The Eau Claire Police Department said on social media that the officers responded to a call that a woman, Lisa Smith, 46, and her dog “Bo” shoplifted items from the store. The woman’s son, 26-year-old Benny Vann, was causing chaos in the store as well.
Apparently, Smith came into the shop and let Bo run off towards customers while the woman was pulling apart displays in the store and placing them in her cart. When they were told to leave, the woman turned Karate Kid and attacked police officers. After a brief fight with the officers, Smith was arrested. As a last-ditch attempt, she tried to kick a window out of a police car. Bad dog Bo tried to flee the crime scene with a box of Jiffy Cornbread Muffin Mix in his mouth.
The son, meanwhile, was fully naked and exposed himself to other customers at the store. When officers confronted Vann, he threatened to run over them with his scooter, prompting the police to use physical force to stop the scooter and arrest the man.
Mommy dearest was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and misdemeanor bail jumping. The son is facing charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, disorderly conduct and retail theft.
“Bo was caught by Officers in the store and brought to the Humane Association. The dog was not charged – we issued him a warning for the theft,” police said in a statement.
