LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

Livingston Police arrested a Cleveland man after he allegedly stole from Walmart, ran away from police after he was handcuffed and fell on his face after a police officer had to use a Taser to stop him Wednesday.

According to a press release, officers were dispatched to Walmart, located at 1620 West Church St. in regards to a shoplifter. While officers were on the way, the suspect, Everitt Wayne McAdams II, 29, tried to leave the store and began struggling with Walmart staff while committing the theft, according to the report.

Officers arrived and took him into custody. According to the report, McAdams identified himself as Joshua Caleb McAdams. McAdams was then escorted to a patrol vehicle and as he was about to be placed in the car, he began running away, according to the report.

The officer commanded him to stop running and used a Taser to stop him after he ignored the command. McAdams then fell on his face.

Police then identified McAdams as his true identity and learned he was a wanted fugitive from Liberty and San Jacinto Counties.

McAdams is charged with second-degree robbery, third-degree escape from custody and class-A failure to identify. His bail is set collectively at $67,500.
