A grandfather accused of shoplifting videogames during a Black Friday shopping spree got a smashed face and a throat full of blood after cops sent him sprawling to the floor. Stories as to what happened in the Buckeye Walmart are conflicting, but the result is a same -- an old man almost drowned in his own juices over a couple of games.

The commonly accepted story is that the man's grandson was being trampled by violently rioting shoppers, so he put some games in his waistband to help the boy. Cops accused the man of trying to steal the games and arrested him. At some point, a police officer tripped the man and sent him face-first into the ground. His face was then thrust in a puddle of his own blood while the cops cuffed him. 

"They grabbed the guy, body planted him into the ground -- face shatters on concrete. That's a hard concrete floor inside Walmart," said one witness. "All of a sudden, you see this little boy run up and wailing and yelling, ‘Grandpa, Grandpa,’ and crying his eyes out."

The man needed first aid but the arresting cops had no idea how to administer it. A Youtube video shows another shopper having to clear the grandfather's airways of blood while asking the cops, "What did you do to him?" Though witnesses say no theft took place, the cops have a different story -- they claim he was stealing and resisting arrest, which seems to be an increasingly popular excuse with police officers these days.
