Woman Faces Reckless Conduct Charge in Sam's Club Fight
Daniela Griffin, 24, of the 14500 block of South Pulaski Road, was charged with reckless conduct after she got into a fight with a fellow employee at Sam's Club, 16100 S. Harlem Ave.
Tinley Park Police responded to a call around 1:47 p.m. of a fight in the meat department at the wholesale shopping club between Griffin and Breauna A. Harris, 21, of Chicago, both employees at the store.
Griffin told police she was in the meat department, cutting pork chops, when Harris approached her with two large spoons in her hands and started arguing, the report stated. Griffin said she thought Harris was going to hit her with a spoon and raised her arms to protect herself, accidentally cutting Harris' nose with the knife she was using to cut pork chops, the report continued.
However, Harris told police that she thought Griffin was trying to intentionally hurt her with the knife, the report stated. Another store employee who witnessed the incident also said she though Griffin was out to hurt Harris, according to the report.
Police took Griffin in to custody and charged her with reckless conduct because using a knife was a part of her job. Griffin was released on $1,500 bond, and her next court date is Oct. 24.
The report did not say why the women were arguing.
