Do NOT Abuse the Express Lane in front of William Golladay

William Golladay

A 65-year-old Punta Gorda man in a motorized wheelchair was allegedly rammed with a shopping cart when he exceeded the 20-item limit in the Taylor Rd. Walmart. Police allege William Golladay became irate when the elderly man in front of him had more items than permitted in the express lane. The two began yelling at each other, and Golladay reportedly rammed the victim with his cart, injuring his elbow. Keep in mind, Golladay is even older, at 77 years of age. But the charge is a felony because the victim is 65 years or old, in spite of Golladay’s age. This case of checkout rage occurred yesterday in Charlotte county.

This is the first incident I have ever heard reported of a battery arrest with a shopping cart used as a weapon. That get’s it a #weirdbattery tag… And #registerrage for battery with a shopping cart.

  1. Was at that store yesterday, missed the incident. Store was packed more than hurricane prepping & Black Friday combined. Over 12 registers open. EVERYBODY in the store had pretty much a “F-you” attitude, especially the elderly. Must of had at least 12 different people step on my feet or ram their carts into me. Time to start shopping after 10pm until season is over.

  2. Apparently the senior citizens can be vicious!
