A motorist was arrested inside a Boise grocery store Sunday night after he refused to stop when an Ada County Sheriff's deputy tried to pull him over for a moving violation on Interstate 84, according to the sheriff's office.

Tyler W. Hattabaugh, 28, was booked into Ada County Jail late Sunday. He is charged with felony DUI, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, and a misdemeanor count of eluding arrest.

The incident started at about 8:45 p.m., when the deputy tried to pull over a pickup on eastbound I-84, near milepost 51. The driver kept going, then took the Vista Avenue exit and went north, the sheriff's office said. He parked at the Albertson's store at the corner of Overland Road and Vista Avenue, then ran into the store.

The same deputy that tried to make the traffic stop followed the man on foot into the store. He had a verbal confrontation with the suspect, who said he wasn't going to surrender, the sheriff's office said.

The deputy tasered the man, and the suspect gave up. Deputies said they found marijuana and other drug paraphernalia inside the suspect's truck.
