Michael Hatfield was found to be under-ringing merchandise at the self-checkout at Walmart on Monday, and this wasn’t the first time he had been observed doing so. While Monday’s incident was under the dollar limit for Walmart to prosecute for shoplifting, he was formally trespassed from the store by Ashland City PD.
A tipster tells Scoop: Nashville that Hatfield may face actual theft charges once video of previous incidents is reviwed now that his identity is known. Got a tip of your own? Tell us here, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, DM us on Facebook/Instagram, or text/call 615-669-TIPS.
