The video, which was posted Tuesday evening on Facebook by Renee Buckner, shows the woman complaining about another shopper bringing items up to the cashier while a friend was checking out. “Just go back wherever the f*ck you came from,” she told the other shopper, who was Hispanic. “Hey, tell them to go back where they belong. You know, they come here to live and they act like they’re everybody else. Get in the back of the line like everybody else does.” The angry woman then suggested the Hispanic women were paying for their items with taxpayer-funded welfare income. Officials at Jefferson Mall in Louisville said they planned to ban the woman, who is white and appears to be in her 60s, once she’s identified. “We are aware of the video posted online today from inside JCPenney,” officials said on the mall’s Facebook page. “Jefferson Mall strives to create a comfortable and convenient experience for all of our guests and we absolutely do not condone this type of behavior. We will work with JCPenney to identify this woman and, once identified, she will be permanently banned from Jefferson Mall, per our Behavioral Code of Conduct.” None of the other shoppers who appear in the video spoke up to defend the Hispanic women against the angry woman’s rant.

(WYMT) - The Pike County sheriff obtained arrest warrants Friday after a video was posted online showing a man running naked through Walmart, pouring milk on himself and yelling he was on fire. Sheriff's deputies said they plan to arrest Timothy Smith of Phelps and David Daniels of Belfry in connection to the incident at the Walmart in South Williamson. The video went online Wednesday night and quickly racked up hundreds of views. Walmart shoppers saw more than they were looking for when a man stripped down and ran through the store in nothing but shoes, socks and a Halloween mask. "I wouldn't want to go in Walmart and see somebody walking around naked or running around naked, so they need to go to jail," Pike County Sheriff Rodney Scott said. Scott said the streaker and camera operator are both guilty of indecent exposure and believes the prank was planned. "The first question I would have would be, 'Why?'" Scott said. "Why would they want to do it." Sheriff's deputies are trying to track down the getaway driver, who waited for the streaker to get into a red car before driving away. YouTube removed the video because it shows nudity. As of 11 p.m. Friday, Smith and Daniels had not been arrested, Pike County Detention Center officials said. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tTVFxsI8WM
