LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they were called to the Kroger store at Beuchel Bypass and Bardstown Road earlier this month after a Louisville man was found damaging merchandise and drinking hand sanitizer.
It happened shortly after 10 p.m. on Friday, June 3.
Police say that, when they arrived, they found 28-year-old Bahad Mahmoud in the parking lot of the nearby Walgreens, yelling. When the officer identified himself and asked Mahmoud to stop, he allegedly took off running.
Officers tased Mahmoud and were able to arrest him, but not before he spit into an officer's face and caused an officer to sustain an injury to his thumb, according to the arrest report.
Mahmoud was then taken to the hospital, after police say he consumed bath salts.
