ARLINGTON, Texas — A Kroger store manager lost his job after he confronted a shoplifting suspect who was holding a knife.
Cell phone video shot by a shopper shows the manager taking on the suspect in the parking lot of a Kroger store in Arlington. The manager eventually takes the knife from the man and throws the suspect to the ground.
Kroger said in a statement to FOX4 the manager's actions were "not a reflection of our company's fraud prevention protocol, procedures or training."
