I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again because it bears repeating: Don’t mess with a pregnant chick, even one who’s breaking the law. Especially one who is breaking the law. I’m thinking that cocktail of pregnancy hormones and adrenaline could end in your early demise.
But, well, an employee of a South Carolina beauty supply store learned that lesson the hard way when confronting Alexis Sade Hayes who was allegedly trying to abscond with a bottle of hair spray she hadn’t paid for.
According to Consumerist, 23-year-old Hayes was jamming stuff into her purse when the man busted her. Instead of giving up Hayes reportedly clocked the guy with a can of hair spray, dropped her purse full of stolen goods, and took off running.
I admit, I was a little disappointed when I read that part. I was hoping she sprayed him in the face, mace-style – only because that is a much cooler story. A blast to the face probably would’ve been better for the store employee too because he had blood all over his face and shirt and was taken to the hospital with a head injury. Yeesh. This was no plastic bottle of Salon Selectives… Must’ve been a big ass can of Aqua Net, is all I can figure.
As for Hayes, she was later pulled over driving a car (note: don’t drop your purse while committing a crime) and said she was just defending herself. Cops aren’t buying it and say she’ll likely face assault charges. Hayes was also taken to the hospital with abdominal pain which teaches us all a valuable lesson – shoplifting and attacking people with hairspray isn’t good for your baby.
