The manager and an employee of VIP, an adult store, in Orange were arrested when a discussion over work performance got violent and turned into a fight, according to police.
Officers responded to the VIP store at 170 Boston Post Road just after 5 p.m. on Dec. 28 after receiving reports of store employees being involved in a disturbance and learned that the manager of the store, 34-year-old Holly Saunders, of New Haven, had tried to counsel an employee, 26-year-old Jacqueline Ferraro, of Branford, about work performance and the two started arguing, according to police.
When the argument escalated into a fight, Saunders hit Ferraro in the head and other store employees intervened and separated the two, police said.
Ferraro was charged with second-degree breach of peace and Saunders was charged with third-degree assault and second-degree breach of peace.
Both were released on a promise to appear and are due in court on Jan. 11.
