While McMahon claimed Powell did nothing wrong, he said it is common practice for someone with a shoplifter to be cited as well.

Powell was not arrested.

The incident happened at the Walmart on Outer Loop near New Cut Road on Wednesday evening, according to McMahon.

Powell is expected to be in Jefferson County District Court next week.
