Mitchell Helton, 55, was arrested by the Manatee County Sheriff & # 39; s Office for aiming a gun at two delivery men who arrived late with his order
A Florida man was arrested for pointing his gun at two furniture deliverers after they arrived late with his order.
The men called Mitchell Helton of Manatee County, Florida, to inform him that they were on their way to his house with his orders from Furniture Warehouse on August 3.
Jason Adamson and Jose Marrero came to Helton's home to ajar the front door, according to the police report.
When they called Helton, the 55-year-old was allegedly angry because it had taken so long before he had his birth.
When asked if he still wanted the furniture, the delegate said that Helton replied: & # 39; Do what you want & # 39; and retired to his bedroom.
Helton reportedly appeared while the men were unloading his furniture, pulled the gun, and aimed at the two men.
Helton reportedly said: & # 39; You know, I shot people for less. & # 39;
Adamson and Marrero explained the situation and explained how to make a complaint and then continued to unpack the furniture.
Although Adamson and Marrero reportedly rejected his action as a token of anger about the late delivery, they still contacted the Manatee County Sheriff office.
The two Furniture Warehouse delivery agents contacted the authorities and Helton was subsequently accused of two counts of severe abuse.
When confronted with delegates, Helton claimed that he was shocked by someone trying to enter his house and trying to defend himself.
Helton admitted confronting the men with a gun, but according to the report could not explain why he did that.
Helton also couldn't explain why, frightened and for fear of his safety, he called Furniture Warehouse instead of 911.
Helton said to the delivery person: & # 39; You know, I shot people for less & # 39;
Delegates reported inconsistencies in Helton's story.
Helton was arrested on August 3, charged with two counts of severe mistreatment and had a $ 5,000 bond.
The Sherate & # 39; s Office of Manatee County released Helton three days later on August 6.
Helton was previously arrested by the sheriff & # 39; s office in Sarasota County for drunk driving in 2014.
