You better show up on time…A Florida man was arrested after he became upset over his late-arriving furniture and pulled his gun on the delivery crew.
55-Year-Old Mitchell Helton pointed his weapon at the men as they unloaded the furniture at his house in Bradenton on Saturday.
Helton told the men, “I’ve shot people for less.”
The men tried to de-escalate the situation and explained how Helton could file a formal complaint about the late arrival and continued delivering the furniture, the report said.
But the delivery crew later called the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, who arrested Helton. He couldn’t provide a consistent story to police about why he confronted the men with a gun, the Herald reported.
Helton was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, according to arrest records. He was released from the Manatee County jail Tuesday on $5,000 bond.
