Tiger Mauling Victim Arrested for Shoplifting in San Leandro

Amritpal Dhaliwal On Thursday, March 27, 2008, Amritpal "Paul" Dhaliwal was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting at the Bayfair Center Target store. Normally, shoplifting arrests aren't newsworthy, but Dhaliwal was one of the brothers mauled by an escaped tiger at the San Francisco Zoo on Christmas Day in 2007.

San Leandro Police said that Dhaliwal hid two Nintendo Wii controllers in his pants and was placed under citizen's arrest by Target store security. According to a police report by Officer Warren DeGuzman, Dhaliwal "admitted to selecting and concealing the merchandise." Dhaliwal was released from jail the next day after posting $1,500 bail.
