Police: Missouri thief arrested after calling 911
REPUBLIC (AP) - Missouri authorities have charged a Republic man who they say stole whiskey from a convenience store and later made a drunken 911 call that referenced the theft.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that 34-year-old Timothy Henderson was arrested in connection to the Sept. 7 incident. He is charged with theft, second-degree assault and resisting arrest.
Police say a Kum & Go employee confronted Henderson as he walked out of the store with a bottle of honey whiskey and two cans of hard cider. They say the employee was in front of Henderson's vehicle when Henderson tried to run him over.
Police say Henderson was drinking the whiskey when they found him after he called 911 a few hours later.
He was released on $7,500 bond. It wasn't immediately clear if he has an attorney.
