66-year-old Teresa Himes was working at the Walgreens on Central Pike on Christmas Day when Ladavion Lemon, 20, approached the counter with a bag of peanuts with the express purpose of obtaining cash back on his purchase. During the touch screens on the payment machine, he skipped the option to receive cash back, and the purchase was completed. The two then got into an argument about him not being given the option to receive cashback. He became angry during the interaction and squeezed the bag of peanuts, causing it to pop. Himes then reportedly grabbed the young Black man’s arm and began to twist it, taking the peanuts he just paid for. Police were called, and she was issued a citation for assault. She was booked on the outstanding citation this week.
Teresa Himes was booked on the citation on January 11th, charged with assault.
