Police: Manager Arrested In Coupon Fight

GERMANTOWN, Tenn., (UPI) — Police in Tennessee said they arrested the manager of a discount store after she allegedly attacked a customer who attempted to use a large number of coupons.

Melissa Mozzo-Mart and Jennifer Hill told police they were shopping at the Dollar Tree in Germantown, where a sign was posted saying the store is now accepting coupons, Wednesday when the manager told them they were trying to use too many coupons, ABC News reported Monday.

“We were told we were harassing her [the store manager] to use those coupons and she threatened to call the cops,” Hill said.

The women said they attempted to reason with the manager, who was caught on a cellphone recording saying the women “better make like water and get to running.”

Hill said she left the store first and watched as Mozzo-Mart collected her coupons. However, before the second woman could leave, she was attacked by the manager, the customers said.

“With her fist balled up that’s when she hit me in the eye and the face,” Mozzo-Mart said.

The manager, whose name was not released, was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor assault.

“We were trying to save a little money,” Hill said.

Dollar Tree officials said the incident is being investigated.
