Officers say the man went into the CVS around 5:30 p.m. with a knife and ordered everyone out.

Then he opened a bottle of liquor and refused to leave or drop the knife when police arrived, so they tased him.

The suspect is now on his way to jail or the hospital, we're not sure which, but he's OK.

The CVS should re-open soon.
