From a Sears in San Antonio, Texas comes this tale of line cutting, punches and firearms. In related news, people still shop at Sears. Who knew?
Sgt. Rob Carey said that a man was trying to cut his way to the front of the line, which didn’t sit well with his fellow shoppers, according to San Antonio Express-News. Arguments escalated to name calling before the alleged line-cutter punched another shopper in the face.
Witnesses told San Antonio News that the man who was punched then pulled out a gun and pointed it at the line-cutter, but police say the man actually pointed the gun at the ground. The crowd of waiting shoppers scattered when he pulled the gun, and the man who was trying to cut the line ran and hid behind a refrigerator before he ran out of the store, according to witnesses.
The gun puller wasn’t charged, since he had a valid concealed handgun permit. That’s comforting.
