One of the stars of the epic Walmart brawl has been arrested by Indiana police on preliminary charges of child neglect, a felony, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor.
Amber Stephenson, 34, could be seen brawling with another woman and encouraging her 6-year-old son to throw punches himself in the now infamous fight video, posted on June 4.
As authorities were attempting to identify the women involved, Stephenson herself came forward on Wednesday to give her side of the story in a radio interview.
(The woman) was sitting there yelling at an employee at Walmart, and she was telling her that she was a (expletive) and that she was going to get out of the chair and whoop her (expletive),” Stephenson told the Smiley Morning Show. “She used the ‘n-word,’ so in my defense, I was standing up for the employee.”
The other brawler, 39-year-old Rebecca Mills, will not face charges for her role in the violence.
