Detectives say a man tried to run over a deputy, after stealing from a Chalmette Walmart.
Titus White, 33, faces several charges, including attempted murder, hit and run, theft and drug possession.
The St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office says he stole a 55-inch television from the store Saturday night and tried to run over an off-duty deputy who was working the detail.
The deputy got out of the way, but was able to get the SUV's license plate before the suspect drove out of the parking lot.
Officers located the vehicle yesterday morning and later arrested White. They said they found the television, as well as heroin, crack cocaine and a crack pipe in the vehicle.
White is being held on $200,000 dollars bond.
