Mother, son arrested at Wisconsin Walmart for nudity, theft, karate threats

EAU CLAIRE, Wisconsin - A Wisconsin woman and her adult son face a variety of charges including public nudity, theft by dog, and threatening police with karate at a local Walmart.

Police say 46-year-old Lisa Smith brought her dog Bo into the store without a leash. They say she stole items, and her dog ran free in the store, eventually taking a box of Jiffy Cornbread Muffin Mix and trying to leave the store with it.

When police arrived, they say Smith threatened them with karate moves out in the parking lot, then tried to kick out a window in the police car.

Meanwhile, police say, Smith's 25-year-old son Benny Vann went to the back of the store and took off all of his clothes, exposing himself to other customers, then took new clothes from the racks.

Officers say when they approached Vann, he tried to run them over with a scooter.
