Teen tased following attempted burglary

A Bowling Green teen was tased three times after he scuffled with two BGPD officers following an attempted theft at Walmart Sunday.

According to a Probable Cause Statement filed by BGPD officer Clint Bechtel, he and officer Chad Perkins were dispatched to the Bowling Green Walmart on a shoplifting call. The statement says that a minor attempted to steal a can of Ultraduster compressed air as 17-year-old Austin Greenfield blocked the juvenile from sight.

Officers ran Greenfield’s record prior to arriving at the scene, to discover he was wanted on a juvenile warrant for burglary from the state of Iowa.
