Florida man allegedly points gun at late deliverymen: ‘I’ve shot people for less’
[NYPOST] A Florida man was arrested this week after pointing a gun at two deliverymen when they arrived late with his furniture ‐ threatening that he has "shot people for less," a report said.
The suspect, 55-year-old Mitchell Helton of Manatee County, immediately began complaining when the deliverymen showed up late with the furniture he ordered on Aug. 3, according to the Bradenton Herald.
The men asked if he still wanted the furniture and Helton allegedly told them to "do whatever you want."
He then allegedly grabbed his gun and pointed it at both of the men as he walked out of his house, according to the report.
"You know, I’ve shot people for less," he allegedly said.
The deliverymen called the police after the threat, and Helton was arrested soon after.
He was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and is being held on $5,000 bond, according to the report.
