A Chattanooga woman was arrested after police say she started attacking another woman inside the Walmart on Signal Mountain Road.
According to police, Jayme Strickland was near the checkout lanes when 33-year-old Hattie Leigh Lyles started a verbal altercation with her.
Ms. Strickland told police that Ms. Lyles became angry and struck her in the face while trying to choke her. She said after this attack, Ms. Lyles left the store.
Ms. Strickland remained inside and asked a friend to take photos of her face and neck so that she could report the incident.
However, she said Ms. Lyles came back into the store and found her again.
Ms. Strickland said the woman went for her throat again while pulling her hair and punching her face.
An employee helped break up the fight until police arrived.
Ms. Lyles was charged with aggravated assault. Bond was set at $5,000. She is scheduled to appear before Sessions Court Judge Clarence Shattuck on Aug. 21.
