    TROY, OH - MAY 11: An employee restocks a shelf in the grocery section of a Wal-Mart Supercenter May 11, 2005 in Troy, Ohio. Wal-Mart, America's largest retailer and the largest company in the world based on revenue, has evolved into a giant economic force for the U.S. economy. With growth, the company continues to weather criticism of low wages, anti-union policies as well as accusations that it has homogenized America's retail economy and driven traditional stores and shops out of business.

    A Florida Walmart worker who suspected her coworker of sleeping with her husband was arrested after she attacked the other woman and bit off part of her finger at the supercenter's parking lot.

    Clodia Coicour, 43, was arrested Monday on a charge of aggressive battery with great bodily harm causing permanent disfigurement for the bloody brawl at a East Naples Walmart, according to naplesnews.com.

    The victim told Collier County deputies that she was leaving work around 7 a.m. when she was suddenly attacked by Coicour near her car.

    She told police Coicour threw a spicy substance -- possibly pepper spray -- in her face which burned her eyes before Coicour set upon her and bit off the tip of her right ring finger.

    Coicour later told deputies that she attacked the woman because she'd heard a rumor she was having an affair with her husband, who also works at Walmart.

    The husband and the victim denied the affair to police.
