23-year-old Carolynn Wright of South Carolina got herself in trouble with the Myrtle Beach Police Department after stealing condoms, lubricant and panties from Walmart and then biting off the finger of the employee that tried to stop her.

Wright got into a scuffle Sunday afternoon with two female Walmart employees. She allegedly punched one in the head and then “bit down on worker Candice Lawsom’s finger, ‘causing a portion of [Lawsom’s] finger to be bitten off.'”


Police were called and emergency responders recovered the piece of the finger and transported it along with Lawsom to the hospital. The finger tip was not able to be reattached.

Wright’s getaway driver was apparently a 71-year-old man in a minivan who seemed confused about what was happening.

According to The Smoking Gun:

Wright was arrested after cops pulled her from a minivan in the Walmart parking lot. The car’s driver, a 71-year-old man, told officers that Wright had gone into the store “to make a purchase,” and that when she returned to the vehicle, she directed him to “Drive!” The man added that while “there was someone standing in front of the vehicle blocking his way,” Wright again demanded that he “Drive!”

Wright faces charges of  felony aggravated assault, simple assault and larceny, Wright is being held without bond in advance of a court hearing next week.

Just last March, Wright pleaded guilty to assaulting her coworker with a high-heel inside a strip club bathroom around 2 a.m.
