TEXARKANA, TX (KSLA) -

Texarkana, Texas police used a pepper gun to arrest a man acting strangely inside an area fast-food restaurant Wednesday. 

Police were called to the McDonald's in the 1700 block of New Boston Road around 12:30 p.m.

Police say 38-year-old James Moore was asked to leave by the restaurant manager because of his strange behavior. 

Police say Moore was sitting alone in a booth sweating profusely and mumbling to himself. He then reportedly took off his shirt and began to swing it over his head.

Officers tried to talk to Moore but he reportedly ignored them and kept mumbling. After telling him to leave multiple times, police say they fired 2 shots from the pepper gun.

Police were able to pull Moore from the booth and handcuff him.

Moore is facing charges for criminal trespass and resisting arrest.
