Family Fight in Norwalk Walmart
A family fight at Walmart broke out in Norwalk last week. If you know anything about Walmart and Norwalk, you know there are two different locations- One is on the Wilton line, the other is on Connecticut Avenue. Seems like the Connecticut Avenue location is the one that tends to have the most crazy news stories. I spend a lot of time at the one on the Wilton line because of this.
So what could spark a family fight that involved a 77-year-old grandmother getting hit by a grown man? An incident with their shopping carts.
52-year-old New Canaan resident Jaime Bolanos was shopping with his wife (at the Walmart) when wifey pushed another shopper’s cart out of the way. The woman that had her cart pushed remarked that perhaps Mrs. Bolanos should have asked for permission before doing that. Apparently that was all it took to anger Mrs. Bolanos. She called the woman a “marrana” which is Spanish for “pig”. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Mr. Bolanos decided to step in. He went up to the woman and lunged towards her as if he was going to hit her. (Keep in mind that while he did this, the woman was carrying her nine-year-old child)
To attempt to keep some order, the woman’s 77-year-old mother got in between them. Mr. Bolanos (actually, screw that- at this point I’ll only refer to him as The Jerk)… cough, cough… The Jerk then pushed the grandmother out of the way. The elderly woman hit The Jerk in the face (Go Grandma!) and he responded by hitting her with closed fists. (Honestly, what the hell is wrong with these people?)
Remember, this is all going down in the “Back to School” section at Walmart.
Story doesn’t end there. The Jerk then leaves the store and the woman follows him out to the parking lot where he proceeds to take off his shoes to fight her. (Why do you need to take your shoes off to fight a woman? Are you afraid of scuffing your Sperry’s?) That’s when police showed up. I would love to have heard the explanation as to why he had his shoes off in a Walmart parking lot.
Just The Jerk was arrested. Unbelievable. What grown man hits an elderly woman who is protecting their daughter and grandchild?
Make note: This is why you should only shop at the Walmart on the Wilton line. I’ve been telling my friends this for years.
