A 33-year-old woman from White Plains, New York, was arrested after allegedly biting a T.J. Maxx employee who discovered her attempting to steal underwear. I left her name out of the article because if she’s stealing underwear from a T.J. Maxx, she’s probably got enough problems.

Richard Durham, the employee who was allegedly attacked, told police the woman bit his left thumb when he attempted to retrieve $21.50 worth of stolen underwear from her purse. He also claims the woman kicked him and knocked the glasses off his face. The attack ended when the woman’s shopping companions stepped in and returned the merchandise.

If convicted, the woman could receive up to one-and-a-half years in prison and $1,500 in fines.
