The clerk of the Marathon activated a silent alarm after Hayes stole a beer and snack cake. Officers encountered Hayes on North Riverside Drive walking with the stolen items in his backpack. Hayes began shouting racial slurs at the officers. Initially, Hayes clenched his fist and approached the officers but immediately backed away.
