A man who says he was just trying to return an item to Walmart blames theft prevention officers there for destroying his life. “It’s totally destroyed my quality of life,” said Michael Baillio, who was injured during an altercation at a Walmart in Humble in February of 2010.
That day, Baillio and his wife had gone to Walmart to return some motor oil and pick up some other goods. Surveillance video shows the couple at the checkout counter with containers of motor oil already in their shopping cart. Baillio said he had forgotten about the oil and the cashier failed to notice it. Theft prevention officers approached the pair as they turned to leave.
“They told us we were under suspicion of shoplifting. I couldn’t believe it,” he said.
Next on the video, the couple is seen in the theft prevention room talking to the officers. Then one of the men flipped Baillio over his back and onto the ground. Baillio said he was forced to lie face down with a knee in his back for close to 20 minutes.More info here
