TOWSON, Md. (AP/WBOC)- A Lansdowne woman who pleaded guilty to a fight involving bleach and Pine-Sol at a Wal-Mart has been ordered to stay away from the store for five years.
Theresa M. Jefferson was given a 5-year suspended sentence Wednesday after pleading guilty to second-degree misdemeanor assault.
Jefferson apologized for her actions during a hearing in Baltimore County Circuit Court. She was ordered to stay away from Wal-Mart, which her lawyer says he understood to mean all Wal-Mart stores.
Jefferson admitted fighting inside the Baltimore County store on Oct. 8 with Ebony Odoms. The Wal-Mart was full of shoppers when the fight suddenly broke out in aisle 11, which was stocked with cleaning products.
The store was shut down for several hours because of the use of the chemicals. Nineteen people were taken to the hospital where they were treated for injuries.
Odoms was also charged. Her trial was postponed until June.
