JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- A West Palm Beach man is out of jail on a $4,000 bond after kicking a police officer in the face and pepper-spraying a loss-prevention officer while trying to steal a stereo speaker from Wal-Mart.

The Palm Beach Post reported 19-year-old Velmando Williams tried to leave the store with a $100 speaker hidden in his pants. The police report said the loss-prevention officer was pepper-sprayed when attempting to stop Williams.

Juniper police officers found and arrested Williams, who began kicking the windows once inside the police car and banging his head against the glass.

The officer was kicked three times, spit at and threatened to be killed while trying to subdue Williams. He is charged with committing theft, battery and simple assault of a law-enforcement officer and other charges.
