Deputies with Constable Mark Herman's Office said they were called to the Houston Premium Outlets in the 29300 block of the Northwest Freeway for a disturbance happening inside the Tory Burch store.
Employees said a shopper, later identified as Amy McCay, refused to leave the store after she was asked to wear her mask inside while she shopped.
According to employees, McCay also began coughing on other shoppers during the incident.
Officials said when they arrived, McCay reportedly refused to cooperate with them and ended up pushing a deputy.
McCay was charged with assault on a peace officer. She was booked into the Harris County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
