A woman in Wichita Falls, Texas, entered a Walmart and ate half a cake, according to the Times Record News. At checkout, she refused to pay for the whole cake. She was banned from the store.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. There was a certain logic to the actions of a woman in Wichita Falls, Texas. The Times Record News reports she entered a Walmart and found a cake, which she ate right there. To be precise, she ate half the cake, and that caused the trouble because, at checkout, she refused to pay for the other half. You can imagine her pointing out she didn't eat that half, but the store saw it differently. They called police, who banned the woman from the store. It's MORNING EDITION.
