Fired Walmart Employee Drives Car Through Store (Video)

A fired Walmart employee returned to his old store by crashing a car through the front door and doing “a lot of damage."

The alleged driver, 32-year-old Lacy Cordell Gentry, had been recently fired from the facility where the damage occurred around 6 a.m. No injuries were reported and Gentry was taken into custody.

A police officer told WSOC-TV that because Walmart’s aisles are more narrow than a roadway, the incident was destructive.

One cop said, “If you take a car through a Walmart, there’s going to be a lot of damage."

Police claim Gentry had outstanding warrants prior to the Walmart incident. No motive for the drive-through has been determined, though Gentry faces multiple charges and is being held on $100, 000 bond.
