Crazed Menards Black Friday shopper set for TV fame [VIDEO]
The woman caught on tape going ballistic at a Wisconsin Menards on Black Friday is going to be a TV star.
It also sounds like she's a person of interest to Grand Chute police, who expect to make an arrest in the case pretty soon. They haven't released her name.
Nicole Young, of New London, had the presence of mind to flip on her cell phone's video camera the day after Thanksgiving when the shopper cut a checkout line, and then tackled store displays and wrestled with an employee.
The video clip went viral on YouTube. And now it's been picked up by the truTV cable channel for a segment in its "Top 20 Most Shocking" show.
The show's producer told the Post Crescent that she's always on the lookout for stories "about women going crazy on Black Friday," and Young's video fit the bill.
"It's outrageous and comical all at the same time," Debra Weeks said.
