But when the transaction failed she allegedly assaulted a store clerk and ran from the Valley Station Walmart with the gadgets.

Police say Browning went to another Walmart in the area a short time later and again attempted to buy several iPads again with the card,, reported Whas11.com.

She was stopped at the scene while allegedly attempting to flee with the iPads.

Browning, according to police, has been banned from all Walmart stores due to previous  incidents with the store, reported.

She was taken to the Louisville Metro Jail and charged with robbery, shoplifting and trespassing.
