No good deed goes unpunished. So when an Ocala Wal-Mart employee chased a a knife-wielding theft suspect across the store parking lot, things ended badly — and not just for the thief.
Cops arrested him and Wal-Mart got their $42.98 pack of golf balls back.
Josh Rutner, who almost got his face slashed in the chase, says he was just doing his job.
The next day Wal-Mart sent a corporate representative all the way from Arkansas to fire him, reports the Ocala Star Banner.
Apparantly Wal-Mart has a strict no-chase policy that Rutner, who’d only been on the job four months, violated.
“They said this is a non-rehirable offense,” Rutner said. “At the age of 65, I can’t even come back and become a greeter.”
Fair or no?
