According to the sheriff’s office, a man who appeared intoxicated was asking people for money and cigarettes at a shopping center’s Chipotle before moving on to Starbucks, reports Click 2 Houston.

Witnesses said he was acting strangely, and after he was turned down a few times, he became aggravated and punched the front glass window of the Starbucks. He hit it so hard he toppled through, as glass rained down on him and the two women sitting inside.
