Shopper Busts Out Taser

One angry Joliet shopper took his frustrations too far this weekend. The shopper, Juan Varges, was asked to leave the Gonzales Supermarket at 652 Collins St. on Friday and returned later in the day brandishing a taser. Varges allegedly attacked the store's butcher but no injuries were reported. There was no report on whether or not the taser was discharged but Varges was charged with battery, criminal trespassing and unlawful use of a weapon.
