NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Two officers are thrown trying to make an arrest at a west Nashville Wal Mart.

Metro police say they had to deploy a Taser on 22-year-old Richard Ezidinma, who is 6'9" and 280 lbs., after he threw them into an ice machine and a stack of boxes at the store on the 7000 block of Charlotte Pike on Sunday as they were trying to take him into custody. They were responding to a domestic assault, where witnesses say they feared for a woman he was chasing around a shopping cart.

Ezidinma says he just took a pair of shorts from his girlfriend's hands because they were too short and he didn't want her buying them, according to the police report.

One officer received cuts to his face, as a result of the incident.
