A 20-year-old Pennsylvania woman accused of urinating on potatoes in the middle of a Walmart has turned herself in to police, according to WTAE-TV reporter Marcie Cipriani.
In a bizarre incident, the woman was caught on surveillance video last week urinating on potatoes inside Walmart supermarket
The woman, identified as Grace Brown was later charged with criminal mischief, open lewdness, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness in connection with the incident at the West Mifflin Walmart in Pennsylvania.
Reports say the woman “appeared to be unsteady on her feet and appeared intoxicated.”
Authorities say Brown was caught on camera walking over to the produce section, where she pulled down her pants and squatted on a produce rack “where potatoes and other vegetables are offered for sale.” She then left the store.
The criminal complaint filed against her states that a Walmart employee noticed a “puddle of liquid” on the floor and reported it to store security.
According to Police, the woman came back into the store a short time later, sat on a bench by the front entrance and then left again with a man.

A Walmart security official reviewed the surveillance video the following day and realized the woman appeared to be urinating. He met with police and showed them the video.
On Tuesday afternoon, Brown turned herself in to authorities. She was questioned, and police say she “identified herself as the female in the video.”
Walmart released the following statement about the incident:
“The safety of our customers is a top priority for us. This type of obscene conduct is outrageous and we immediately disposed of the affected products and sanitized the area to ensure its cleanliness and safety for our customers. We’re working with the West Mifflin Police Department to find the responsible party and have them prosecuted.”
Police are working with the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office on the investigation.
