Lookin’ Like A Fool With Your Pants On The Ground
A shopping trip to a local Wal-Mart turned violent.
A teenage girl suffered a brutal beating.
It started as a comment from 16-year-old Hailey Hendricks.
“Her whole behind was out,” said Hendricks.
It ended with Hendricks laying flat on the floor of a Lewisburg Wal-Mart.
“The second time she hit me is when I hit the back of my head and then I guess I knocked out,” said Hendricks.
Hendricks said she told Tabitha Brown to pull up her pants, then Brown and her sister Symetra Brown allegedly came at Hendricks with fists flying.
“They had to place titanium under her eye because the floor of the bottom of her eye was completely blown out,” said Hendricks’ mother Jeanetta Hurt.
Now, Hendricks looks a lot different than she did when she first walked into that store.
Medics rushed Hendricks to Vanderbilt where she had to undergo facial reconstructive surgery, and as of right now, she still can’t open her left eye.
“It’s just the hardest thing you can see is your child strapped with a neck brace and everything just crying in pain,” said Hurt.
Hurt said she hopes other teens will learn from her daughter’s mistake.
“You just have so much crime out there. You can say something to somebody and you never know if they’ve got a gun, if they’ve got a knife, you don’t know. Everything’s just violent out there so it’s better to keep your mouth shut,” said Hurt.
As for Hendricks, she sees things a bit differently.
“Yes, I’d tell her to pull her pants up again because it was disrespectful,” said Hendricks.
Police said the Brown sisters took off after the fight, but a store employee got their license plate number.
Officers caught up with the duo and charged them with aggravated assault.
