NEW IBERIA - Police in Louisiana have arrested a man who they say drove a motorcycle through a Walmart.

A witness at the scene said the man claimed to have an explosive device on his motorcycle, according to KATC. The unidentified man allegedly drove the bike from the front of the store to the back of the building multiple times, nearly hitting customers.

"The people working here were afraid," a shopper told KATC. "They didn’t know what he was going to do. Some of them thought he might have a gun.”

The man was taken into custody and sent to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
