A security incident at a Bulwell store was recorded and has since been uploaded on the internet and gone viral.
A woman was being detained by a store security guard in the B & M shop in Bulwell town centre on Tuesday for allegedly shoplifting goods.
But the actions of the store detective were filmed by another customer who was outraged by the woman’s treatment.
He has since uploaded the video to UTube which has sparked an internet debate.
The store was closed for a spell on Tuesday afternoon after the police were called to the incident.
A police spokesman said: “The woman involved in the B&M incident has been charged with six counts of theft from shop from September to 10th December at Fultons, Matalan and B&M.
“Kristie Sharp, aged 34, of Hornbeam Gardens, Bulwell, is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Christmas Eve.
B&M failed to make a comment before the Dispatch went to press.
