OROVILLE (CBS13) — The Butte County Sheriff’s Office says 50-year-old Thomas Remy is behind bars for robbing an Oroville 7-11 and assaulting its clerk.

But they say Remy didn’t go quietly.

After cornering Remy and ordering him to the ground, he reportedly advanced at a deputy while wielding a beer bottle.

A deputy then tasered Remy, but it reportedly did not affect him.

Deputies say Remy then ran down a hill and jumped over a barbed wire fence.

That’s when K9 Chico was deployed, who apprehended Remy.

Thomas Remy is behind bars on charges of resisting arrest, robbery, and burglary.
