Debt Leads To Girl Scout Cookie Brawl

posted by Adam Gubernath - 

  • A pair of teens confronted a family selling Girl Scout cookies outside a Walmart, claiming the daughter owed them $20 
  • When the family said they didn't have the cash, the teens demanded payment in cookies, but were refused 
  • The teens then attacked the parents of the Girl Scout 
  • They were later arrested 

How many Thin Mints can you buy with $20? Two teens in Palm Coast, Florida tried to find out and ended up in the back of a cop car. 

Teen Daniel Kennedy and his 16-year-old brother, whose name was not released, went to the local Walmart where Thomas Ketchum was helping sell Girl Scout cookies. They claimed Ketchum's daughter owed them $20 and they wanted the money. When 49-year-old Ketchum said he didn't have the cash, the Kennedys demanded payment in cookies. They were denied, and caused a massive scene that ended with Ketchum being knocked down to the ground and cookie boxes scattered everywhere. 

To make matters even stranger, Daniel and his brother were escorted their by their mom, Erin. It's unclear if she was involved in the melee, which also included injuries to other members of Ketchum's family. Either way, Daniel and his brother were both charged with disorderly conduct and battery. No word on if they got their $20.
