People of Walmart: Walmart Shopper Took Electric Shopping Cart on Drunken Shoplifting Joyride.

A New Mexico man took a drunken shoplifting joyride at a Walmart in an electric shopping cart, authorities said.

Police responded to the store after receiving reports of a man threatening a store employee with a knife.

An employee told officers that Tommy Singer, 53, was drinking a beer and driving around the store in an electric cart.

When that employee confronted Singer about the alcohol, he replied, “What beer?” and started walking away.

Singer then allegedly began to get aggressive with the employee and eventually pulled out a pocket knife, pointed it at him and threatened the employee to stay back, CBS affiliate KRQE reported.

Singer then exited the store and was taken into custody outside the store entrance, the Farmington Daily Times reported.

Officers recovered $106 worth of stolen merchandise, including lipstick, eyeliner, hair spray and four watches.  Singer was subsequently charged with second-degree felony count of armed robbery and a third-degree felony count of tampering with evidence, according to court records.

No word, however, if he was shopping for a female significant other or if he will endeavor to be pretty for his impending trial.
