COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Police say an argument over COVID-19 social distancing led to a fistfight in a Colorado Springs Walmart between two women.

The Gazette reports one of the women complained that the other was not staying 6 feet away in the store on Friday, according to Colorado Springs police.

Police say an argument ensued and the first woman threw the other to the floor. Police say the woman, whose name was not released, was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault.

Health experts recommend people try to stay at least 6 feet (about 2 meters) away from each other to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
