Tyler Scott Schexnider, 34, was booked into the Douglas County Jail on suspicion of third-degree theft and two counts of harassment, all misdemeanors.
Schexnider was accused of trying to shoplift beer from a Texaco station at 334 Harvard Avenue. He allegedly pushed a 38-year-old employee and punched a 50-year-old employee, police said.
