One man is hospitalized

One man is in the hospital after allegedly swallowing a handful of pills following a shoplifting incident that also included an altercation with an officer.

The Hazard Herald reports 28-year-old Joseph Sizemore was allegedly caught trying to steal around 90 dollars worth of merchandise from Wal-Mart.

That's when Hazard Police Sergeant Randy Napier says he had to take Sizemore to the ground as Sizemore tried to hide pills by swallowing them.

Sizemore will face several charges after he's released from the hospital.
