Commander Schwan told DailyMail.com that the incident first started in the parking lot when the drunken man allegedly drove into a parked car but casually strolled into the store without acknowledging the wreck happened.
Officers were dispatched for a hit and run in the parking lot around 3pm on Tuesday.
‘Further investigation revealed Robinson had entered the business and was attempting to shoplift when confronted by store employees,’ Schwan said.
‘Robinson allegedly threatened to assault anyone who touched him and that is when a 21-year-old male community member stepped in and confronted Robinson.
Robinson walked outside of the store and was immediately arrested by cops waiting for him.
‘When officers arrived they located Robinson in the parking lot and detained him,’ Schwan said.
That 21-year-old shopper who had brawled with the drunken man suffered a cut to his hand that required medical attention, cops said.
