A Florida man has been arrested after he threatened to bring a gun to a Walmart store if the remote control car he was buying did not work.
Anthony Reed, 33, was arrested last night on a felony charge of making a false report about using a firearm in a violent manner. The incident occurred at a Walmart store in Clearwater, Florida, when Reed stated to an employee in the toy aisle, “I’m serious about my money. If I get home and this is broken, I’m going to snap and come back here with a gun.”
Police say that Reed admitted to making the threat, but stated that he was joking and did not actually own a gun.
