VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A Valdosta woman was accused Thursday of shoplifting from Walmart while high on Flakka.

24 year old Alicia Hall was arrested around 2 Wednesday afternoon in the parking lot of the Walmart on Norman Dr. in Valdosta. Police say while an officer was trying to arrest Hall, Hall pulled out a box cutter. 

The officer was not hurt. 

While searching Hall after arresting her, the officer reportedly found a small baggie with some Flakka in it.

"[Hall] was sweating profusely and it's not that hot and she wasn't running. That, coupled with the fact that she pulled out the box cutter and she had the Alpha PVP on her, they believed that she was on it. They took her to the hospital," said Valdosta Police Department Lt. Kari Williams.

As of Thursday afternoon, Hall remained in the hospital and was facing multiple charges, including aggravated assault and felony obstruction.
