People do some pretty outrageous things when they are drunk. Just last week, a woman was arrested at the Taco Bell drive-thru after she poured liquor into employees’ mouths as an on-duty police officer watched in the lane behind her. As outrageous as this may seem, one woman’s brazen act at Walmart is now making waves on the internet.

On July 24, a Pennsylvania Walmart employee noticed a puddle of pee next to a sack of potatoes. Puzzled, the employee informed her manager who went to look at the surveillance cameras located in the store and saw a woman urinating on the potatoes.
The West Mifflin Police Department was informed of the incident, but when they arrived on the scene the woman was already gone. The department issued a photo of the woman taken from the surveillance and posted it on social media in the hopes that someone would recognize her.
On Tuesday, Grace Brown, the woman suspected of committing the disgusting act, turned herself in with her attorney, Casey White. The 20-year-old reportedly took responsibility for the act by “identifying herself as the person urinating on the potatoes” when she entered the police station.
According to the Daily Mail, the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office has recommended charges consisting of open lewdness, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
Prior to her confession, a Walmart spokesperson had already issued a statement to Fox News indicating that they planned to take legal action against the party responsible.
“The safety of our customers is a top priority for us. This type of obscene conduct is outrageous, and we immediately disposed of the affected products and sanitized the area to ensure its cleanliness and safety for our customers. We’re working with the West Mifflin Police Department to find the responsible party and have them prosecuted.”
White issued a statement on behalf of her client. “Clearly, she doesn’t want to see herself portrayed in that light,” White told WTAE-TV. “She’s a young lady that has a full-time job. She’s a high-school graduate. She’s working to make her life better.
White added: “She’s embarrassed. She’s a young woman that made a mistake, but she’s going to address whatever issues she may or may not have. She’s going to move forward.”
