Woman accused of mowing down Las Vegas manicurist after stiffing the bill arrested in Arizona

A woman sought for nearly two weeks by authorities in Las Vegas after allegedly skipping out on a $35 manicure and using a stolen vehicle to run over and kill a salon worker who tried to stop her has been arrested in Arizona, police said Friday.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Krystal Whipple was arrested in Glendale on Friday morning.

Nguyen died of blunt force injuries, the Clark County coroner's office told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The confrontation happened on December 29 when a customer got her nails done at Crystal Nails but her credit card was declined for the $35 bill, police said.

Las Vegas police Officer Jacinto Rivera said he did not immediately have details of the arrest but added that prosecutors will seek Whipple's extradition from Arizona to Las Vegas.

Police released footage of the incident hoping to identify the suspect and then on January 4, a warrant for Whipple's arrest was issued.

Grandal, Brewers agree to $18.25M, 1-year deal
His offensive production and defensive framing ability convinced the Brewers to sign Grandal despite the cost of a draft pick. Because he declined the Dodgers' qualifying offer and signed elsewhere, they will now get a compensation draft pick in return.

Graphic surveillance footage released by police shows Whipple attempting to drive away when Nguyen, along with her longtime boyfriend and salon co-manager, Sonny Chung, race out to stop her.

"The Las Vegas Criminal Apprehension Team developed information on the whereabouts of Whipple", according to a statement by Las Vegas Metro Police.

Nguyen can be seen running toward Whipple's auto, a rented Chevrolet Camaro that had been reported stolen.

Police say the auto used in the vehicle park killing had been stolen last month. It was later found abandoned at an apartment complex. Clark County District Court records said she was sentenced to four months in jail for violating probation in that case.

Mother Sharon Whipple apologised to the victim's family and hoped they could eventually forgive her daughter.
