Jerry Evans Madril, 30, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and armed robbery, said Chief Manny Amado of the South Tucson Department of Public Safety.

Madril also had a felony warrant for a probation violation. According to Amado, Madril was on probation for a felony DUI.

South Tucson police also released surveillance footage of the incident, which shows Madril knocking down the cash register and kicking it. The footage also shows a customer hitting Madril with a chair before others jump into the fray.

The incident happened Wednesday afternoon when police say Madril attempted to rob the cashier at Mi Nidito, Amado said.
