EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A woman is charged with trying to steal hundreds of dollars from the place she worked and scratching a police officer.
A criminal complaint shows Carrie Fitzgerald, 28, is charged with 5 counts including battery of a peace officer and misdemeanor theft.
It says surveillance video at the corner store on State Highway 93 showed Fitzgerald stealing 400 dollars and changing a till checkout sheet.
When an officer tried to arrest her, it says she scratched the officer's face, broke his glasses and tried reaching for his gun.
The complaint says Fitzgerald admitted to taking the money, but said she thought she was reaching for his walkie-talkie, not his gun.
