A 37-year-old Mesa man who tried to buy a watch with two counterfeit $100 bills containing a watermark of Abraham Lincoln was arrested on forgery charges, police said.
Scott Martin fought with the owner of the store on Saturday after the shopkeeper confronted him about the counterfeit bills, a court document said.
The owner stunned Martin with a Taser, KPHO-TV in Phoenix reported.
When fire rescue personnel arrived, they cut off Martin's shirt to treat him, and three more counterfeit $100 bills fell out, the document said.
In addition, two more fake $100 bills and one counterfeit $20 bill were found under Martin's armpit, officers said.
