Police Charge Head-Butting Walmart Customer With Assault

Although the Walmart tax worker who was head-butted by a shopper at first declined to press charges against the woman, police confirmed that after a trip to the dentist for some broken teeth, assault charges have been filed.

Police in Texas said though the worker didn’t want to file formal charges after the fight, which was caught on video and shows the shopper ramming her head into the worker’s face, at first. But as KHOU-11 reports, a dentist’s evaluation found that two of the worker’s front teeth were loose.

She contacted police on Wednesday to tell them she wanted to press charges, and provided medical records to back up her tooth claims. Police say they’re planning to file a warrant for the shopper’s arrest soon.

The customer had claimed that the worker had been rude to her during a previous visit, and uttered something under her breath before their filmed physical encounter.
