Two elders, 80-year-old Mary Wannamaker and 63-year-old Myrtle Smith, apparently felt insulted by 33-year-old Amanda Parker.

The incident occurred in the checkout line of the Li'l Cricket store in Pacolet, South Carolina. Mary and Myrtle had just purchased lottery tickets and was behind Parker, when she just asked the women for some privacy because she was about to enter the PIN number for her debit card. The ladies (according to Parker) told her that they did not want her money.

As Parker left the store with the two women behind her, Parker said that someone spit on her and that is when the altercation escalated with the elders hitting her with gallon jugs.
