Man Gets 6-12 Months After Yelling At Walmart Greeter Who Asked To See Receipt

A man has received a 6-12 month sentence after he was accused of yelling and cursing at a Walmart greeter who asked to see his receipt.

The man had bought about $1,000 in electronics and he and his two sons were removing them from the cart when the greeter came by and asked to see his receipt. The man, whose attorney said “felt he and his sons were being disrespected,” allegedly then let fly a string of 20-30 expletives and accused the greeter of being racist. The greeter said the man told him to meet him outside.

Police tracked down the customer’s vehicle after they left, and say they found coke and a glass pipe inside.

If you feel your rights are being trampled on, there are ways to stand up for them. This is not one of them.
