Shoplifter Gets Caught When Her Mobility Cart Gets Stuck 21

Police in Rochester Hills, Michigan caught one of the state's biggest and worst driving shoplifters this week. 400-pound Jerrie Perkins was caught with more than $600 of merchandise after getting her mobility scooter stuck while trying to make a getaway. From the article: "A sheriff’s deputy arrived and asked Perkins to put her hands behind her back, but she 'cursed at the deputy, balled her right hand into a fist and took a fighting stance,' according to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office. The deputy pulled his Taser and told Perkins to put her hands behind her back, but Perkins brought her fist up over her head and looked directly at the deputy. The deputy Tasered Perkins, who then complied with the deputy’s commands and was taken to jail."
