The officer ordered the male to stop several times and pointed the taser at him. the male failed to comply with orders and was subsequently arrested.

A black handled razor blade knife and a skull print handled folding knife were recovered as evidence.

The employee stated that a male, later identified as Frank Elias, had walked out the door of the garden department with a television which was not paid for.

The officer gave the license plate number of the vehicle in which Elias had left. another officer initiated a traffic stop and, upon investigation, the television was recovered.

Elias was arrested for petty theft. The driver, Joshua Hinds-Thornton, who was aware of the incident, was issued a summons for complicity and driving under suspension.
