Authorities in Florence said a shopper was subdued with a stun gun at an Alabama Walmart store as shoppers gathered for Black Friday sales.

WAFF-TV reported that police said they used a stun gun twice to gain control of 22-year-old Christopher Blake Pyron before arresting him.

Authorities said he is charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Police said they made the arrest around 11 p.m. Thursday, about an hour after the Walmart opened its doors for late-night and early-morning shopping.

It’s unknown what was on Pryon’s shopping list.
