A suspected shoplifter allegedly bit a police officer multiple times while she was being taken into custody at a Kroger grocery store in Nashville, a report says. 

The incident began Monday afternoon when the Watertown officer – who was working as security at the store – was notified of a woman who allegedly fled the facility after stuffing items into her purse, WKRN reported, citing an arrest warrant. 

The station says the officer decided to pepper-spray the woman after she resisted arrest.
