"Yancey Man Arrested for Incident At Ingles Supermarket
Burnsville Police have arrested the man who caused a stir at Ingles Supermarket Wednesday afternoon. 54-year-old Larry Dean Hunter was arrested at his residence on Cane River Church Road at around 7 p.m. Thursday without incident, according to Police Chief Brian Buchanan. Hunter, who entered Ingles sometime before 4 p.m. on Wednesday and reportedly displayed a gun and became irate inside the store, frightening several customers, was able to leave the premises before the Burnsville Police and the Yancey County Sheriff’s Department arrived. Surveillance video at the store helped authorities identify Hunter and officials were able to keep an eye on his house until they were able to apprehend him while he was outside working in his yard. “Everything went down smoothly and no one was injured during the arrest,” Chief Buchanan said. Hunter was charged with “going armed to the terror of the people and carrying a firearm into an establishment where alcohol is sold or consumed”, according to Buchanan. Hunter was released on bond and faces a future court date in Yancey County."
I'm not saying that the charge of carrying in an estabishment where alcohol is sold and consumed is the correct charge for this case. If he was acting in an irate manner I can understand why they felt the need to press GATTOP but unless his firearm left his holster I believe it shouldn't stand up. Sounds like he just needs a stern talking to.
Btw, I only posted the entire story because it was way down a very long page and I wanted to save everyone some time but won't make it a habbit.
