On December 2, Joe Cantrell, a disabled former professional wrestler, received a lifetime ban from Walmart for ad matching, which is one of Walmart's proudest traditions.
According to MSN, Cantrell used to browse local stores and then go to Wal-Mart to get the cheapest prices through the retailer's ad matching promotion. However, last week when he went to the Walmart in San Tan Valley, AZ, he was stopped by an employee and he was informed that he was not allowed to ad match. Cantrell then got upset and complained to management. He returned to the store four days later, and he was arrested.
According to WCPO, Cantrell said that he was embarrassed when he was cuffed in front of everybody in the store. He also received a court summons.
According to Fox, Cantrell said that he never threatened anyone when he was in the store, but deputies say that an employee accused him of swearing and threatening him after he told Cantrell that there was no price match on the eggs and milk he wanted to purchase.
Cantrell will appear in court on January 7. Cantrell says that he will never go to that Walmart location again.
