An unidentified woman smashes her hand into Bill Crowell's phone as he records a fight at Walmart on Thursday. Crowell filed a police report.
Tampa, Florida -- Millions of people took part in the madness of Thanksgiving shopping on Thursday, fighting good deals and major lines.
But for one Tampa shopper he found himself in a fight of his own.
Bill Crowell expected shoppers on "Black Thursday" to be aggressive, but he didn't expect one to take the aggression out on him.
"I was looking for a 32-inch TV," he says. "It's the third Black Friday I have ever been a part of. It's not something you intend."
Around 4 p.m. Thursday at the Walmart off Bruce B. Downs in New Tampa, one customer wasn't too much in the holiday spirit.
"Her and another woman had their cart and started cussing at people in line, and then yelled a gay slur," he recalls.
Shocked and stunned, Crowell didn't know what was going to happen next. So he took out his phone and hit the record button.
"She went and asked me to put my phone away. I did not. She had keys in her hand. She punched and hit my hand and it knocked my phone out of hand."
He called for police, but the woman ran. He did file a police report.
"I just want an apology. I don't want to press charges," he says, adding, "I don't want to kick off the season like this."
