News Media: Black Customer Attacks Holly Springs Laundromat Employee [Video Included]
When people come to The Clothes Basket on Highway 7 in Holly Springs, Miss. ,they clean their clothes and it’s Sheri McClatchy’s job to keep the laundromat itself clean. She said, “Never had any trouble at all. Never a cross word with anybody for two years.” This was in reaction to Friday after noon attack. Surveillance cameras captured the moment a customer got in a fight with the laundromat employee following a conversation McClatchy had with two other customers.
According to McClatchy, she was reminding two women not to overload the washing machines. She told them, “That we can’t refund if you’re overloading the washers”.
It was then another customer got involved with a lecture about how the laundromat was responsible if the machines broke. McClatchy said:
“Just started telling me how she was a law student.”
“It had nothing to do with her. She was just another customer in here using the dryer.”
Not long after the verbal assault, a physical fight started. McClatchy said the surveillance camera failed to capture when she was slammed against some dryers. She said:
“When you can’t grab the shirt because the wig is hanging so long, you grab for what you can. You gotta get your hands on them.”
Eventually, McClatchy got away from the fight and walked outside. However, the furious customer came after her. It was then McClatchy drew her gun and the woman backed off. Several minutes later the police arrived the scene but the customer had already taken off. Meanwhile, McClatchy has stated she’s not welcome back at the laundromat.
“I don’t have a problem with her, I have a problem with how she handled it and I hope in her future, she says she’s gonna be an attorney or a lawyer, I hope she learns to hold her composure a whole lot better,” she said.
