A shoplifting suspect had the book thrown at him after he allegedly bit a Sacramento County Sheriff's deputy.
Deputies were called to the Walmart store in the 5800 block of Antelope Road about 7 p.m. Tuesday where store security officers were detaining Breyon D. Wilson, 20, a shoplifting suspect.
When deputies arrived to take Wilson into custody, he tried to run, according to a sheriff's department press release. A struggle began and Wilson bit one of the deputies on the arm.
Eventually, he was subdued and placed under arrest. He was later booked on suspicion of mayhem, battery on a peace officer, resisting an executive officer, committing a crime while out on bail and theft.
The deputy went to a hospital for evaluation but did not sustain any significant injury, according to the department.
