“All I’m trying to do is get my items, that’s it. I’m not being belligerent,” she said on the video.

“We cannot give you anything because it’s not cleared,” replied the owner.

The surveillance video shows the woman knock down the man, leap behind the counter and attack both owners. It shows the suspect dragging the woman by her hair from behind the counter, while destroying displays in the store.
