NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) — A woman in eastern Nebraska has been accused of creating a disturbance at a Wal-Mart that involved an employee injury and damage to a coin machine.
Police in Norfolk say 35-year-old Melinda M. Tyler of Bloomfield was at a local Wal-Mart early Friday when witnesses reported she was seen yelling and hitting a machine that collects coins.
A police report says Tyler at some point threw a glass pipe at a Wal-Mart employee. That caused a cut to the worker’s wrist.
Officers responding to the scene say Tyler appeared intoxicated and resisted arrest. She is accused of pulling her arms away from handcuffs and kicking two officers.
Tyler faces multiple charges including assault, possession of a controlled substance and disturbing the peace. Court records do not list an attorney.
