It's the perfect ending, really: The woman who doused fellow shoppers with pepper spray at a California Walmart on Black Friday may sue the store, reports ABC News. Elizabeth Macias, 32, says she had to use the pepper spray only because the store didn't provide enough security and her two kids were getting seriously roughed up trying to grab X-Boxes. Authorities have decided not to pursue felony charges against Macias, but she could face misdemeanor charges yet. At least 20 shoppers were hit. (More pepper spray stories.)
