The attorney for the woman accused of unleashing pepper spray on a Porter Ranch Wal-Mart Thanksgiving night crowd of shoppers says she may sue the store.
In an interview with Louisa Hodge of KCAL9, attorney Michael Champ, said Elizabeth Macias was fighting for her life and those of her teenage children. He said her son was knocked to the floor "being punched and kicked by a rather large man" who also punched Macias in the face when she tried to come to her son's aid.
However, witness Christina Acuna told Hodge, "I remember her specifically showing the security guy that she had pepper spray attached to her purse strap and she specifically told him that she called the Devonshire Division and that it's okay to use if she felt her life was threatened."
The county District Attorney declined to file felony charges, but the City Attorney's Office is still considering misdemeanor charges.
