HOOVER, AL (WSFA) -

Dale Peterson, the man who made national headlines for an online political campaign in which he unsuccessfully sought the position of Alabama Agriculture Commissioner, was charged Tuesday with shoplifting.

It's the second time Peterson has faced such charges in the last 6 months.

Peterson was arrested Tuesday at the Sam's Club in Hoover, Alabama. That's just outside of Birmingham. Store security say they caught Peterson returning a can of cashews to a shelf after he ate from the package.

After Peterson left the store, security approached him and contacted the police.

Peterson was transported to the Hoover Jail where he was booked on a charge of theft of property in the third degree. He was held on a $1,000 bond, but made bail at 6:40 p.m.

Peterson was arrested in October 2012 at a Walmart, also in Hoover, after he is accused of stealing beer. He claimed the entire ordeal was a misunderstanding.
