Cops Taser 400-Pound Alleged Shoplifter Riding Motorized Cart

Tangles between shoplifters and law enforcement often make for entertaining spectacles, but what went down at a Macomb County, Mich. Meijer in February is tough to top. When a 400-pound woman allegedly used a motorized cart to try to cruise away with $600 in stolen items, she got stuck at the door. She then allegedly pushed and punched a security guard, then resisted arrest until an officer subdued her with a Taser.

The Macomb Daily reports the woman was arrested and charged with unarmed robbery, resisting and obstructing a sheriff’s deputy, as well as second-degree retail fraud.
