ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — A man was arrested on Thursday for reportedly threatening to walk into a St. Augustine Walmart with a gun after the store refused to let him return an inflatable mattress, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.
An offense report says the suspect, Darius Kennedy, 26, became irate when employees at the Walmart told him it was too late to return the mattress, saying he'd missed the 15-day cut-off.
Employees also said the mattress box was opened and the mattress itself looked used and dirty.
That's when Kennedy began yelling profanities at management, creating a scene in front of customers, the report said.
Afterward, Kennedy reportedly said he was walking out to his vehicle to get a gun and was going to return to the store with it.
Deputies were called to the scene and found Kennedy outside the store. As deputies handcuffed Kennedy, the suspect reportedly said it was his right to arm himself and walk back into the store.
Deputies did not find any firearms on Kennedy's person. Kennedy was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and taken to the St. Johns County Jail.
He was also issued a trespass warning, the report said.
