This Texas Man Is Suing Walmart Alleging False Arrest [VIDEO, POLL]

Dallas News |

Imagine walking into Walmart to purchase gift cards for your employees to use, only to be tased and arrested on your way out. This is what happened to Harold Burrowes who had a mission, one he has accomplished before with no problem. Not this time.

He needed to purchase $3,100 worth of the gift cards for his employees to use for diesel fuel. Burrowes was confronted, and before he knew it, the officer stopped him, tased and arrested him.

KDFW Fox 4 in Dallas Fort Worth tells us:

That resisting arrest charge was later dropped, and the district attorney said, “There was a lack of evidence showing that there was a reason to detain or arrest the defendant prior to the offense of resisting arrest.”

In an email, a Walmart spokesperson said, “The safety and well-being of our customers and associates is always a top priority.

Harold Burrowes seeks $5 million and by the looks of things, a settlement should come and the termination of this security may be in the near future.  What do you think?
