SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Salt Lake City police say a man who took two 40-ounce bottles of beer from a convenience store told the clerk where police could find him.

Police said the 29-year-old man, whose name was not released, took the beers from the 7-Eleven store at 1353 W. Indiana Ave. about 10 p.m. Tuesday and told the clerk he would be waiting for police in a nearby park, The Salt Lake Tribune reported Wednesday.

Officers said the man was waiting in the location he specified and challenged one of the two officers who arrived to a fight. The second officer moved in to help his colleague and the man allegedly took a swing at them.

The man was arrested after a brief struggle and taken to the Salt Lake County Jail on suspicion of assault on a police officer, retail theft, resisting arrest and having an open alcoholic beverage in a public place.
