According to the criminal complaint:
On Tuesday, Roman was inside the Walmart at the 3100 block of Oakes Road in Mount Pleasant where he stuffed underwear and a coat down his pants and then left the store. When confronted by loss prevention outside of the store, Roman removed the items and gave them to the employee.
Roman then got into his car and, while trying to leave, struck an occupied Kia Soul and caused damage to the vehicle.
Roman called the Mount Pleasant Police Department to state his car had been stolen, but when confronted with inconsistencies with his story he reportedly "admitted he struck the Kia and fled the scene because he was scared."
Roman could face a maximum of $31,000 in fines and eight years in prison.
