In the video, a woman with dyed blue hair calls to an officer while trying to get another woman out of the supermarket for not wearing a face mask.
She tries to pull the officer off the other woman’s hands as he turns her around and a woman says out of the camera “they must follow directions.”
Another officer with a face mask runs forward to help and both women are turned in handcuffs and march out of the store.
At the end of the video, one of the women yells at a cop from his car and says “I’m 18”.
She is handcuffed and walked out by a second officer to prevent a fight from breaking out

The images were taken on Friday, July 3, the day the law changed to Shelby County, but it only came out this week.
The video maker said, “Shelby County, TN, has passed a mandatory mask law. The police enforce extremely.
“This lady was taken from the store because she didn’t have one and refused to stick to it.”
The video comes after Tennessee Governor Bill Lee emphasized the importance of wearing face masks during his weekly COVID-19 briefing in the Capitol on Tuesday.
Governor Lee said, “This mask here is not conservative. It is not liberal.
“Shame someone for wearing a mask or shame someone for not wearing a mask – it’s just not something Tennesseans should do.
“It’s a simple personal decision that might save an elderly person’s life in this state, it just might make all the difference to keep a business open in Tennessee.”
The Tennessee Department of Health reported 1,514 new cases of coronavirus and 18 deaths yesterday, with 767 Tennesseans dying from the virus since the onset of the pandemic.
