WKYT - Lexington - Headlines

Man charged with robbery following violent shoplifting

Police say a man injured a worker while trying to steal a TV from a Walmart store late.

Lexington Police were already inside the store, off Nicholasville Road, when police say David Anthony Hale pushed an employee while running with the TV into the parking lot.

Officers chased after Hale even after they say he put the TV in the back of a pickup truck and jumped into the passenger seat.

Officers quickly stopped the truck and arrested Hale.

Police say he is charged with first-degree robbery, since the worker was injured.

That worker's injuries are described as minor.

Police say the driver of the pickup likely won't face charges, because they say the driver wasn't aware of Hale's intentions when giving him a ride.
