Despite Arrest For Shoplifting, Tennessee Man Leaves Walmart With A Smiley Face

Meet Jason Archer.

The Tennessee man, 36, was arrested Friday evening after allegedly trying to shoplift nearly $1200 in merchandise from a Walmart. Archer, who was initially detained by store security, sought to flee when cops approached.

Archer struggled with--and attempted to strike--officers, according to a criminal complaint. However, based on Archer’s mug shot, the cops appeared more adept at landing their blows.

As a result, Archer was left with head wounds in a pattern that recalls Walmart’s old smiley face symbol (seen at left).

Archer spent four days in jail before bonding out this morning. He is scheduled for a February 4 appearance in General Sessions court.
