Grannies on mobility scooters do mother of all battles in supermarket!July 11th, 2008 - 4:27 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 11 (ANI): Employees of a Crawley, England, supermarket had to drag two elderly women on mobility scooters apart after they got into a fight, ramming each other like dodgems.
Workers said that they found the grandmothers trading blows in front of shoppers in an aisle of their Iceland store.
They were prized apart after staff heard screams.
“It was shocking. Seeing these two old ladies going for each other like that was truly disturbing,” the Telegraph quoted a store worker, as saying.
The shelf-stacker, who did not wish to be named, added: “They could have been seriously hurt - they were ramming each other like dodgems.”
The warring pensioners, who had been friends, fell out over money and police was called to the scene after the episode.
They held one of the pensioners on suspicion of assaulting the other 78- year-old woman who suffered an injury to her arm.
She was later rushed to the hospital.
The granddaughter of one of them said: “The two of them met some months ago and this lady was always at grandma’’s house. They became really friendly but fell out massively over money.” (ANI)
