Ah, two men fighting in a supermarket, over a shopping cart, in Florida. And I thought Publix was classier than Wal-Mart. Apparently, these two men just set the high-end grocery store back a couple of pegs.
Fox Orlando shared the video of the fight shot on another shopper’s cell phone. It seemed like a normal day for Edwin Colon. He was in line for a “Pub Sub” – those in Florida and South Georgia know exactly what I’m talking about – when an angry man confronted him. That’s when all hell broke loose.
The news website reported:
Orlando Police say this happened at the Baldwin Park Publix Monday at 5:45 p.m. The man in gray, identified by police as Edwin Colon, told officers this all started outside when he asked a pregnant woman to move a shopping cart that she had just used over so he could pull his car into the parking spot.
According to the incident report, Colon told Orlando Police that the pregnant female responded by grabbing the cart, shaking it and asking, “What do you want me to do with it?” Then, he claims she started cursing at him.
Colon told police he cursed back, got out of his car and went to Publix deli to get a sandwich. A witness told police she saw the pregnant woman call her husband on her cell phone moments later. Colon told police that, as he was placing his order, an unknown man who identified himself as the pregnant woman’s husband, “proceeded to push his face into Colon’s, poking him with his nose.”
Colon says he pushed the man to create distance, then he says the husband tried putting him in a headlock. Things got ugly fast. The video Hallmark posted on YouTube starts after the fight had already begun.
So this all started over a shopping cart? Or was it the husband being angry that Colon yelled and cursed at his pregnant wife? I would have to go with the latter.
I have to empathize with Colon a little though. If the woman had just finished with the shopping cart, the least she could have done was moved it out of the way so he could park.
