A "couponing" Tennessee mother says she was physically attacked inside a grocery store by a customer who complained she was holding up the line, KTLA sister WREG in Memphis reported Monday.

Megan Wilson told the TV station she was attempting to use several coupons at a Kroger store in Memphis last Friday when a customer got frustrated because it was taking a long time at the checkout register.

"He started shouting 'Come on, there's other people out here. Nobody has time for this,'" Wilson recalled.

She then went "back and forth" with the man before the altercation turned violent, Wilson told WREG.

"He grabbed my bun pulled me back and smashed me into my cart. When I came to... I was on the ground and my leg was under the cart," she said.

Wilson said her shopping cart was knocked over during the altercation, and that the customer ran out of the store, leaving his items behind.

A photo posted by Wilson on Facebook shows a shopping cart turned over with groceries strewn around the market's floor.

Kroger released a statement about the incident:

"We want to thank Central Defense Security for reacting quickly and calling the police. Kroger Delta will continue working with the Memphis Police Department to help resolve this situation between two customers."
