Toilet Paper Dispute Overflows Into Fight

An argument over toilet paper overflowed into a fight, sending one motel maid to the hospital and another to jail.

The maids at the Siesta Motor Lodge in North Charleston armed themselves with a plunger and mop after accusing each other of taking toilet paper from each other's cleaning carts, North Charleston police said.

Deloris Smith, 47, is charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature. A magistrate set her bail Friday at $5,000.

The argument began about 9:40 a.m. Thursday in the motel's laundry room. The 52-year-old maid wounded in the scuffle said Smith grabbed a mop and hit her on the arms. She was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, police said.

Smith said she was defending herself from her co-worker's plunger.
