Walmart shoplifting suspect arrested after tazer fails

Tulsa, Okla. — A man accused of shoplifting at Walmart is tackled by a Tulsa County deputy. We're told 33-year old James Earls had been tazed and tackled twice after he ran onto the parking lot at the store near 71st and Memorial. TCSO Capt. John Bryant said, “The tazer did not work and the deputy feels it was because the individual had a very poofy baggy coat.” Earls had a BB pistol, BBs and gun oil in his possession when he was arrested around midnight Thursday morning. Earls was booked on possession of controlled drugs, larceny, obstruction and resisting arrest. He also had an outstanding warrant.
