(KMOV) – Authorities have one man in custody who they say is responsible for beating a Florissant police officer.

Jamarrio Moore, 24, was allegedly spotted stealing food from K-Mart in the Flower Valley Shopping Center on Sunday when two officers went after him.

Moore reportedly hit one of the officers in the face multiple times, leaving him with a swollen face and several cuts.

Authorities were able to use a taser to stop Moore from assaulting the officer.

He was taken into custody and charged with resisting arrest and second-degree assault on a law enforcement officer.
