Police: Girl, 7, was asked to pepper spray workers


The Associated Press


UPPER DARBY, Pa. -- Police say a Philadelphia-area woman returned to a dollar store where she'd been banned and pepper-sprayed employees who tried to escort her out before giving the can to her 7-year-old daughter and asking her to continue the fight. 


Upper Darby police say 27-year-old Delaina Garling went to the Family Dollar Store on Monday, a place she'd been banned from for alleged theft. When employees tried to escort her out, police say she doused them with pepper spray. 


Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says after employees tackled Garling, she handed the can to her daughter and said: "You know what to do, baby. Spray it!" Chitwood says the girl never used the spray.
