They say video showed Stevens shooting pepper spray in a Taco Bell employee's face before Plotnikoff crawled through the drive-thru window late Sunday.

Police say the worker was twice pistol-whipped on the head by Plotnikoff and suffered serious injuries.

They say no money was taken before the suspects drove away.
