New Hampshire Market Basket Customer Assaulted by Watermelon
Going to the grocery store has turned into a dangerous event. Now, you have to look out for flying fruit. We know people can get feisty inside of grocery stores especially when we’re preparing for a storm, but at a New Hampshire Market Basket recently, things got a little out of control.
The incident took place last night (Thursday) at the Tilton, New Hampshire Market Basket. It happened after 6pm and unfortunately there are no real details about the incident. The only thing that is being reported is that the victim was taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries. No arrests were made however police say the incident is still under investigation.
There are fights at grocery stores all the time. You see many on social media that go viral including one from last year where a woman handed off her baby just so she could fight customers. This happened in Australia and went viral immediately. Another fight went viral in Texas and this one was because of a free food hoax. H-E-B Grocery in Austin reported that due to a power outage, they had to throw away massive amounts of food. Someone posted on social media that the food was free and people could come grab it. Over 250 people showed up to fight over the food and police had to come break it up.
The best way to avoid fighting at a grocery store is to take into account the “dos” and “don’ts” of grocery shopping. Here in New England, Market Basket stores are the most popular and we’ve compiled a list of rules you must follow to ensure your grocery store trip is smooth. Take note of these before going shopping this weekend (especially because a big storm is coming). Best of luck to you!
