The shoplifter eventually gave up the fight and walked away from the boutique. Interestingly enough, the video shows the shoplifter apologizing to the business owner and even offering her a hug. Bullock rightfully did not want any part of that apology and told the shoplifter to never come back to the store.

Bullock said in an interview with WAFB that she was proud of herself for standing up for her store, as she has put so much work and time into owning her boutique.
