CHICO – The Safeway store on East Avenue was the scene on the evening of May 2 of a battery.

Responding officers discovered that 25-year-old Colin Thompson tried to steal a bottle of liquor.

Store security stopped Thompson, who shoved the guard and a struggle ensued.

The suspect punched the security guard and left, liquor-less.

Another officer spotted Thompson, who was then detained without incident. However, he did attempt some spitting and kicking at officers.

Thompson was arrested for robbery, battery on a peace officer, battery on a security guard and resisting arrest.

His bail is set at $50,000.
