Pine Bluff police have identified the people involved in an altercation at the Walmart Supercenter on Wednesday night.
Police spokeswoman Regina VonTungeln said Herbert Harris, 31, of Pine Bluff attacked James Heath, whose age and hometown were not listed, in the electronics section of the store, and Heath, who had a permit to carry a gun, responded by drawing his weapon.
According to the intake log at the adult detention center, Harris was charged with third-degree battery, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after he wrestled with police Sgt. Lynn Wright, who was in the store shopping. Bond for Harris was set at $1,100.
VonTungeln said Heath was released without charges pending further investigation.
On Wednesday night, VonTungeln said store customers alerted Wright to the presence of someone in the store with a gun, and he confronted Harris, whom he thought had the gun, and when Harris refused to cooperate, Wright wrestled him to the ground.
Customers yelled at Wright telling him he had the wrong man, and Heath was located later.
About 5:30 p.m., police dispatchers put out an officer needs help code because of the situation at Walmart but that code was cancelled a short time later.
