A man armed with pepper spray and a baton was tased by police after supposedly robbing the Red Roof Inn in White Hall Tuesday night just before 10:00.
Police say the man waited outside the lobby until guests left. He then stormed in and told the woman working inside it was in her best interest to comply.
Wearing a hoodie, a mask and gloves, the man went behind the counter and took money from the register. He then went into the back of the office in search of a safe but had no luck.
Cops were immediately called and tracked the man down fleeing on a bicycle. That's when the man apparently swung the baton at the deputy who tased him, taking him to the ground and placed him in custody.
The White Hall Police Department is investigating.
