A 29-year-old woman fell through the ceiling of a convenience store when she was trying to escape from the cops. They were ready and waiting though, and arrested her right away. A 28-year-old man was also in on the act and had to be tasered and wrestled to the ground by cops and the store owner before he finally gave up!
Store owner, Paul Chauhan, called police after he noticed the couple in his store and started becoming suspicious of them. The man tried to buy a can of soda with a credit, but was denied multiple times. He claimed it was his girlfriend’s card, but Chauhan immediately suspected the couple was using a stolen credit card.
The man left the store, but Chauhan saw him sitting outside the building with a woman who he assumed to be the girlfriend a short time later.
The police showed up and attempted to talk to them, but the male started running and pushed the female suspect into the cop. Talk about a lack of chivalry!
The cop began running after the man and wrestling with him, which is when the woman tried to make her getaway by running into the store’s back room. She scaled a ladder and clambered into the space above the ceiling tiles to hide.
As more officers arrived for back-up, the woman came crashing down into the store through the ceiling and landed onto a row of metal shelving below. After that, it was a quick non-confrontational arrest at that point! Luckily, nobody was hurt.
The couple was charged with using a stolen credit card, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, attempting to disarm a police officer and resisting arrest from someone aiding the police. That’s quite a laundry list of charges!
