SUNRISE, FL — A Swiss shopper’s fight with a shoe-store manager at a Florida — which quickly escalated into a brawl — has been caught on camera.
The incident, which local radio personality Andy Slater recorded on his cell phone and later shared on social media, began at around 5:30 P.M. on Wednesday at Sawgrass Mills Mall when a Swiss tourist attempted to enter the Steve Madden store.
Slater, of 940-AM WINZ and iHeartRadio, explained in a tweet that the store was not letting anyone in at the time, but the tourist became enraged and claimed that she was being discriminated against.
The unidentified blonde tourist tries to push her way past a male employee inside the store, and a female store manager then approaches and asks the woman to back away.
The tourist begins yelling, and the verbal confrontation turns physical when she suddenly pours water on the store manager from a plastic bottle in her hand — and then punches her in the face. The manager hits back twice before being dragged inside the store by her colleagues while shocked shoppers watch in horror.
The Steve Madden store remained closed for several hours following the incident, according to NBC Miami.
So far, the Sunrise Police Department says that no arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
