A disabled Florida man got a beat down from an elderly wacko Walmart customer who freaked out after the wheelchair-bound man used the express checkout lane to purchase more than 20 items.
William Golladay, 77, whacked Walmart customer John Malherbe, 65, repeatedly with a shopping cart after Malherbe bought 22 — instead of the maximum 20 — items in the Punta Gorda store’s checkout aisle.
The register rage started when Golladay began to count, out loud, the number of items Malherbe had to purchase as they waited in line, WZVN-TV reported.
“He kept screaming about too many groceries and stuff,” Malherbe told the station. “And I said, ‘What?’ I think it was the shock, of ‘What? Are you serious?’
And I kept asking my wife, ‘What?!’”
