The South Euclid Police Department says they were first called to a Walmart for reports of a fight between two women in the aisle with potato chips on Tuesday.
Police say one woman approached the other woman who was with her 7-year-old daughter and “threatened to beat her”. From there, the woman pulled down her face mask and tried to spit at the other woman, got into her shopping cart and allegedly hit her face with the meatball.

The police learned that the two women had known each other before the incident, as they used to be neighbors of a maisonette. The woman who was hit had a warrant of protection against the woman who approached her.
The woman, who is accused by police of instigating the incident, was arrested and charged with assault and violating a temporary protection order.
Her 5-year-old child was placed in the care of another family member. Police say the suspect has a “violent” criminal history and several arrest warrants against her.
