MEMPHIS, Tennessee - A woman who was recently attacked in the checkout lane of a Kroger grocery store after admittedly spending 20 minutes to sort coupons and complete her purchase told a different story than newly-released video is showing.
Megan Wilson is an extreme-couponer who carries a large binder of coupons on shopping trips.
She says a man in line behind her complained that she was taking too long to check out.
"He started shouting 'Come on, there's other people out here. Nobody has time for this,'" Wilson told WREG.
Wilson exchanged some harsh words, and when she turned to leave, she says her hand hit the counter, causing her to accidentally spill her drink on the man.
That's when he attacked, allegedly smashing her head on her cart and, Wilson said, knocked her unconscious.
"He grabbed my bun, pulled me back and smashed me into my cart. When I came to, I was on the ground and my leg was under the cart," she said.
Wilson claims the assault left her covered in bruises with a possible broken rib, a knot on her head, and an injured hip.
However, Memphis Police have now released surveillance video showing Wilson appearing to intentionally toss her drink on the man right before that attack.
Police also say Wilson only suffered a small scratch on her forehead and refused medical treatment.
Once officers find and question the man in the video, assault charges could be filed against both parties.
The man drove off in a blue Ford F150 after running out of the store and leaving his groceries behind.
"I've never in my life expected something like this to happen to me, especially in the middle of a grocery store," an emotional Wilson said during a live Facebook broadcast.
