Galax police were called to Food City in Galax on April 14, on a report of an elderly woman hitting cars in the parking lot with her cane and yelling at them.
A later police report confirmed that the situation was a verbal altercation between a man’s girlfriend and his ex-wife.
“She didn’t strike any cars with a cane, but [she] did roll a buggy into the other woman’s vehicle,” said Capt. James Cox of the Galax Police Department. “Apparently, she was flinging the cane around, but didn’t hit anything.”
No damage was reported and no charges were obtained by anyone at the scene, Cox said.
