VALAPARAISO, Indiana — The claws really came out on this one.
An Indiana woman unhappy with the manicure she got from a nail salon has been charged with dragging an employee across the parking lot with her car as she tried to leave without paying, cops said.
Charley Fowler, 28, has been accused of walking out the Diamond Nails & Spa in Valaparaiso, after refusing to the $30 fee for a manicure. Fowler said she thought they had done a lousy a job and rejected on offer to do it again, reported the Times of Northwest Indiana.
But as she left the store, employees followed her while calling police. Cops say Fowler then hopped behind the wheel. When she started to pull out, a male employee of the salon was knocked down and dragged across the parking lot.
He was not seriously hurt.
Fowler was charged preliminarily with misdemeanor theft and criminal recklessness. Her attorney argues that the altercation is a civil matter and belongs in civil rather than criminal court.
