(Meredith) – A 25-year-old man and his 46-year-old mother were arrested at a Walmart in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, after she was allegedly performing karate while he allegedly stripped nude inside the store.
According to Gray News, Benny Vann, 25, and Lisa Smith, 46, were entering the store with Smith’s dog, Bo. She allegedly brought the dog in without a leash and the dog began running around the store, police said.
While the dog ran around the store, Smith was allegedly tearing apart displays and was asked by Walmart staff to leave. She complied, but then went out into the parking lot to perform karate, the Eau Claire Police Department said on a post on its Facebook page.
While she was doing that, Vann allegedly took off all his clothes and exposed himself to other shoppers. However, police said he was trying to cover himself by putting on clothes that were on display.
Officers arrived at the scene and arrested Smith, but not before she allegedly fought officers by kicking the windows of the patrol car. Police said they attempted to arrested Vann as well, but he didn't comply, even going so far as to try to run over an officer while riding a scooter, Gray News reported.
Police eventually arrested Vann as well. Meanwhile, Bo was found holding a box of Jiffy cornbread in his mouth.
Vann has been charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, disorderly conduct and retail theft. Smith was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and misdemeanor bail jumping.
