A Dollar General cashier was served a warrant by the Roanoke Rapids Police Department Friday for communicating threats and a Halifax County Sheriff’s Office deputy who can be seen in a video walking out of the store during the verbal confrontation  has been disciplined.

Roanoke Rapids police Chief Bobby Martin said this afternoon the victim in the case obtained a warrant against Randi Fahey, 33, of Roanoke Rapids, for communicating threats.

The confrontation between Fahey and the victim began when the victim asked the employee to double-bag the items she bought. Fahey is no longer employed with the store.

The video shows the clerk using expletives and threatening the customer at the Dollar General on Roanoke Avenue.

Martin said Fahey was released on her own recognizance and has a July 28 court date in Halifax County District Court.

Meanwhile, Sheriff Wes Tripp said he has disciplined a deputy who in the video can be seen walking out of the store during the confrontation.

Because of personnel issues, he declined to comment on the nature of the discipline or give the deputy’s name.
