BEECH GROVE, Ind. (July 22, 2015) – One of the women charged in a viral video fight at a Beech Grove Walmart elected for a plea deal.

Rebecca Mills, 39, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. She was sentenced to 180 days in jail but received a suspended sentence, meaning she won’t serve jail time. In addition, court records show she was given 40 hours of community service and a "stay away order" forbidding her from going to Marion County Walmart locations.

The June fight was posted on YouTube, where it quickly went viral. In the video, Mills is seen fighting with another woman, 34-year-old Amber Stephenson, after they argued at the Walmart on Emerson Avenue in Beech Grove. The video shows Stephenson’s 6-year-old son also getting involved.

Mills, who had been sitting in a motorized cart, got out of the cart to confront Stephenson. Stephenson told police she heard Mills threaten a worker at the store.

Stephenson, who is charged with neglect of a dependent and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, is due in court later this month.
