Current Chopping on Motor Driver

I'm wanting to stop a DC motor that is being stalled. I was reading the datasheet for the DRV8701, and it says it has a current chopping resistor.

Let's say the motor stall current is 10A, and I set the current chopping resistor to 5A. Does that mean it turn off the motor when it hits 5A or does that mean it only allow up to 5A to the motor.

** Nevermind... it won't go above the maximum by modulating the voltage.

The driver uses its own PWM to limit the current.
