Maxwell allegedly entered the store at 2:30 A.M. and, at first, attempted to buy beer. After the clerk informed him that she couldn’t sell it because alcohol sales are banned at that hour, Maxell reportedly inquired:

“What would happen if I stole some beer?”

The clerk replied that she’d call 911 and summon police officers who would arrest him. As though putting such a claim to the test, Maxwell then allegedly grabbed two 18-packs of Bud Light and walked off.

Sure enough, the clerk called 911 and police rapidly responded. They said Maxwell struggled upon being confronted. One officer wrote in the arrest report:

“Upon exiting my patrol vehicle, I gave several commands for Maxwell to stop walking, but he refused and took a bladed stance towards me.”

Eventually, the cops got cuffs on Maxwell and took him to jail. He was booked on charges of petty theft and battery on a police officer. He also never got to drink the beer.
