LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was arrested after police say he tried to push his way past store security and endangered the lives of several people in a parking lot -- all to allegedly steal $1.98 worth of candy bars.

According to an arrest report, 33-year-old Timothy Chapman was at the Kroger on Terry Road, near Greenwood Road, at 6 p.m. on Dec. 18, when he tried to walk out of the store with two candy bars.

When store security tried to confront him, he allegedly pushed them several times in an attempt to get away.

Police say he then got in his car and "backed through the parking lot to prevent Loss Prevention from seeing his license plate."

Several pedestrians and vehicles in the parking lot were placed at risk, according to the arrest report.

Police arrested Chapman, who allegedly admitted to the theft. One candy bar was recovered (no word on what happened to the second candy bar).

Chapman was arrested and charged with robbery and wanton endangerment.
