FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) - He came to shop. He left in handcuffs.

Police used a stun gun to subdue a Black Friday shopper at a Walmart in Florence Thanksgiving night.

Officers said they had to shock 22-year old Christopher Blake Pyron twice to get him under control so they could arrest him.

Pyron is charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

A fellow shopper posted a picture of the arrest on Twitter. It allegedly shows Pyron face down on the ground and a Florence Police officer with his knee on Pyron's back.

The officers arrested Pyron around 11 p.m. - just about an hour after Walmart opened its doors for Black Friday.
