COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – A fight between two women that broke out at a Walmart in Colorado Springs apparently started because of a disagreement over social distancing. A customer who was a safe distance away captured the scuffle on video last Friday with her phone. It shows fists flying for a few seconds next to a checkout counter and employees trying to break it up.

“It’s kind of scary that people feel this way — that it could lead to a physical altercation,” Brianna Carroll said.

Neither of the women who were fighting were wearing masks. Colorado currently is under a mandatory mask wearing order due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Walmart is located on East Platte Avenue.

    C’mon man! This might cause a case of the vapors at a Dillard’s or a Kohl’s but this is pretty tepid stuff for a local Walmart.
