Wal-Mart greeter tries to stop shoplifter

A 72-year-old Wal-Mart greeter is recovering from broken ribs, a punctured lung and facial injuries after trying to stop a suspected shoplifter. Police say the man was knocked over and then run over by the getaway car in Marietta, Georgia, over the weekend. He spent yesterday in the hospital. A store security guard was chasing shoplifting suspect Bradley Chapman out of the door when the security alarm sounded. The greeter got the suspect on the ground, but officials say Chapman got free and got into the car with his wife and son. Police say when Chapman put the car in reverse, the door hit the elderly man, who was still struggling to stop him.

Police say Chapman led them on a high-speed chase before he and his wife were arrested in northwest Atlanta.
