The employee stated that she attempted to walk away from him several times and he blocked her path each time.

Walmart employees then located Butcher who was trying to leave and detained him until police arrived.
He is charged with simple assault, simple battery and false imprisonment. Police said there is not specific charge of stealing a kiss.
