A woman accused of hiding Savers merchandise under her baby Saturday was later pepper-sprayed after not submitting to arrest, according to Little Rock police.
Shamirra Nechelle Hudspeth, 36, placed items in her purse and under her baby when she left Savers thrift store without paying, according to a police report. When store security confronted her, Hudspeth gave back some, but not all, of the items, the report states.
When officers arrived, Hudspeth ran from them and "refused to cooperate," according to the report.
An officer pepper-sprayed Hudspeth, who was then treated by medics and booked into the Pulaski County jail.
Hudspeth faces charges of theft of property, fleeing, obstructing governmental operations and refusal to submit to arrest.
She had earlier been arrested by the Pulaski County sheriff's office and charged with theft by receiving.
Hudspeth remained on the jail's roster late Sunday. A hold was placed on her custody for the Hempstead County sheriff's office.
