    Tulsa police arrested Tiffane Liggins after they said she hit a man with her car to while trying to get away after shoplifting.

    Liggins was shopping at the Aldi on East 21st Street when her daughter asked the security guard to show her something in the back of the store. While the security guard was distracted, police say Liggins pushed a cart full of unpaid items out of the store, police said.

    The security guard caught Liggins putting the groceries in her car. He told police he asked Liggins to go back in the store and pay for the items, but she didn't listen.

    Police said the security guard tried blocking her from getting into the driver's seat. She then tried to push past him but missed and fell to the ground, faking an injury.

    She then got into the car. Police said Liggins backed up and hit the security guard while he tried to get her license plate number.

    Police arrested Liggins a few days later on different charges when she tried to return the stolen items at an Aldi in Owasso. She was driving the same vehicle used to hit the security guard.

    Liggins turned herself in on Thursday. She was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon in August, and she turned herself in on those charges
