DESTIN – A 68-year-old Fort Walton Beach woman was charged with battery after she got into a fight with an employee at a medical office complex from which her granddaughter had just resigned.

The younger woman had returned to her workplace to pick up her belongings.

When an employee told them that only the former employee would be allowed beyond a certain point, the older woman forced her way into a secure area and started pushing the employee.

She also made threatening statements, according to her Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.

Other staff members and patients of the clinic observed the fight.

The victim had fresh red marks on her cheek and wrist, the report said.

The grandmother told deputies the other woman pushed her first.
