400-pound Shoplifter Subdued With Taser

30 year old Jerrie Perkins was caught trying to steal $600 worth of electronics equipment at a department store yesterday.  She might have gotten away with it, but her electrical getaway scooter got stuck in the doorway, foiling her escape.

Perkins assaulted a loss-prevention officer, and when ordered by police to submit to arrest, assumed a fighting stance.  An officer used a Taser to subdue her.

Seeing as Perkins is 5 feet, 2 inches, and 400 pounds, I think I would have gone with a harpoon, but I admire the sportsman who can take down big game with a smaller caliber.
