Tipping The Scales Of Justice
The Macomb Daily recently reported that it was anything but a high speed chase when a Pontiac, Michigan woman was apprehended for shoplifting at a nearby Walmart. It seems Jerrie Perkins, 30, was attempting to make a hasty getaway with her $600 worth of unpaid for merchandise.
Only one problem: the 400 lb woman's motorized shopping cart got stuck and she was unable to make it the final few feet to freedom.
As a security personnel officer confronted her, 5'2" Jerrie shoved the woman and popped her in the face. In keeping with the ancient law of "finders keepers," she ignored commands to put her hands behind her back, cussed out a deputy, balled her right hand into a fist, and "took a fighting stance."
She acted even more aggressively when faced with a good tasing, but she would prove less than a match for the powerful jolt of electricity.
Ms. Perkins was charged with unarmed robbery, resisting and obstucting a police officer, and second-degree retail fraud. It's unsure whether the shopping cart will be pressing charges.
What do ya say to that?
