People: we know holiday sales are great, but they're not worth spending the night in jail.

A New York woman was charged with two counts of second-degree assault after punching a 70-year old Walmart employee in the face.

Jacquetta Simmons, 26, assaulted Grace Suozzi on Saturday night after the Walmart greeter asked to see her receipts, according to authorities.

Simmons quickly fled the scene, but employees and customers chased her until she was surrounded. Not long after, police arrived and arrested her.

Police reported that when they checked Simmons' bags, she had receipts for all of the merchandise.
