Jerrie Perkins Mug ShotThere's lots of ways to enter the Weird Crime Mug Shot Hall of Shame, but this one's a first.

Police say an obese Michigan woman accused of stealing from a Meijer store was nabbed by the doorway.

Her motorized cart got stuck in it.

But the story of 30-year-old Jerrie Perkins doesn't end there -- oh, no.

At that point, police say the 400-pound woman shoved and hit a store employee, then cursed at a sheriff's deputy and made a fist.

And that's how a massive woman in a motorized cart gets tasered.
