Fight in Wal-Mart frozen food section puts baby in danger


AMSTERDAM, N.Y. - Five people were arrested at the Amsterdam Wal-Mart after a fight broke out in the frozen food aisle and a ten-month-old baby was caught in harm's way.

On Wednesday, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department received a call from store employees reporting that several people were involved in a large fight within the Wal-Mart.

Tammy Bottomley- 37, John Bottomley- 32, Brianna Riley- 18, Demontavius Collins- 21, and a 16-year-old female, were all arrested on charges of child endangerment, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

When surveillance video of the incident was visited, it became clear that a ten-month-old baby was in jeopardy of serious injury multiple times during the fight. At one point, the baby was even almost struck by a large bottle.

During the fight, several quick-thinking Wal-mart employees helped the group to avoid further injuries. One employee even secured the baby while the mother was fighting.

The incident has been reported to New York State Child Protective Services.
