West Mifflin police identified 20-year-old Grace Brown as the woman in a surveillance video urinating on a bin of potatoes at Walmart.
What We Know:
- According to the criminal complaint, she “appeared to be unsteady on her feet and appeared intoxicated.” A Walmart employee noticed a “puddle of liquid” on the floor and reported it to store security.
- In the video, Brown is seen walking over to the produce section, where she pulled down her pants, squatted on a produce rack, and proceeded to urinate.
- Walmart released a statement on the incident stating, “The safety of our customers is a top priority for us. This type of obscene conduct is outrageous and we immediately disposed of the affected products and sanitized the area to ensure its cleanliness and safety for our customers. We’re working with the West Mifflin Police Department to find the responsible party and have them prosecuted.”
- Brown turned herself in on Tuesday after surveillance images of her were released on their website. She is now being charged with criminal mischief, open lewdness, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. She is awaiting a preliminary hearing.
The incident comes weeks after video posted on social media showed people licking ice cream from Walmart freezers in Texas and Louisiana.
