Texas Man Steals from Target, Sues for $10 Million for Getting Tackled
Does this man really think he's going to walk away with $10 million?
A Texas man is suing Target because he sustained injuries after being tackled by a Target employee in Lubbock. The man was reportedly shoplifting, according to a police report via KXAN. He's suing for up to $10 million.
Lubbock man Kelton Arthur says he was tackled by a Target store employee who knew Jiu Jitsu back in July of 2016. Arthur was allegedly attempting to steal a vacuum. KLBK TV also said police saw video of Arthur walking by the cash registers.
The Jiu Jitsu-trained Target employee, Christopher O'Dell told KLBK:
I chose to use the most humane possible forms of self defense. I know that what I did was within the law, that I didn't break any laws and that I didn't do anything wrong.
Arthur reportedly bit O'Dell in the arm and was attempting to gouge his eyes.
