GARFIELD - Police say they had to pepper-spray and arrest a man after an argument broke out Thursday night at a Wal-Mart in Garfield.

Richard Ramos, 23, allegedly became belligerent while arguing with another shopper over a TV at around 6:30 p.m. Police say Ramos then attacked a Garfield police officer when the store manager called for help.

Ramos was being escorted out of the store when he allegedly spun around and grabbed an officer's shirt with both hands. When officers advised him that he was under arrest, police say Ramos resisted the officer's control.

Police say Ramos had to be subdued with pepper spray and was arrested. No one else was injured, though the store was full of shoppers at the time of the incident.

Ramos was charged with aggravated assault of a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. His bail was set at $10,000.
