According to the report, Samantha Wenger, 23, entered the store and asked employees if she could use their telephone. The employees said no because it was against their store policy.

Wenger left the store and came back 10 minutes later.

While police were reviewing the store footage, they called for backup as Wenger had reportedly slipped her hand out of one handcuff and had taken her top off.

She has been charged with vandalism, public indecency and menacing.
