EASTON, Md. (WMAR) — A woman was arrested after allegedly punching another woman, for cutting in line at an Amish market.

It happened Saturday at the Amish Country Farmers Market in Easton.

Police say 24-year-old Anijah Jha-Ke Wilson angrily approached 50-year-old Desiree Kynda Hemmes, accusing her of cutting the food line.

The two women then got into a heated argument, causing Wilson to punch and knock Hemmes down.

Afterwards, Wilson reportedly jumped on top of Hemmes and continued to punch and kick her, until other customers broke up the brawl.

Witnesses told police they saw Wilson start the fight, but didn't see Hemmes cut the line.

Both women refused medical attention.

Wilson was taken to the Talbot County Detention Center, and charged with second degree assault.

She has since been released on a $7,500.00 unsecured bond, and is scheduled to appear in court for trial on January 6, 2020.
