Georgia Walmart employee in custody after chasing and pushing a co-worker into a fruit cooler

MILTON, Ga. - A worker handing out food samples at a Georgia Walmart was taken into custody after police say she pushed a co-worker handing out taste tests into a fruit cooler.

Police say 56-year-old Marissa Moody's feet were up in the air and she could not get out of the cooler Saturday afternoon at the crowded Walmart in Milton, north of Atlanta. A third worker helped her out of the cooler.

WSB-TV aired surveillance video showing a chase through the produce area before Moody was pushed into the cooler.

Police say 63-year-old Dorothy R. Kemp was charged with simple battery. Jail records did not indicate whether she has an attorney.

Police say the dispute was over equipment used by the workers, including a cutting board and a bottle of disinfecting spray.
