ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., Feb. 14 (UPI) -- A 400-pound Michigan woman was caught shoplifting when her motorized cart got stuck in the store's door, authorities say.

Jerrie Perkins, 30, of Pontiac was attempting to leave a Meijer store in Rochester Hills with more than $600 worth of stolen electronic merchandise Tuesday night, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office told The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens, Mich.

She set off the door alarm and hit a store employee who confronted her, authorities said. When a sheriff's deputy arrived, she "took a fighting stance" and had to be Tasered to be subdued, the report said.

Perkins was charged with unarmed robbery, resisting and obstructing a police officer and second-degree retail fraud. Her bond was set at $15,000 at her arraignment Thursday.
