Walmart spokesman Randy Hargrove said a deal on a cell phone with a prepaid, unlimited usage plan "led to excitement among our customers." He called the incident unfortunate, but said it was isolated.

He said staff and security were on hand at the store to handle the situation and that no injuries were reported and no one was escorted from the store.
