It's understandably frustrating when furniture movers don't show up on time with your sofas and tables. But Mitchell Helton took things a step too far in Manatee County, Florida, on Saturday when he pulled a gun on some tardy furniture movers, telling them, "You know, I've shot people for less." The Bradenton Herald reports that the delivery men managed to calm Helton down a bit by explaining how to file a complaint, but that Helton didn't relinquish his weapon. He didn't fire it either, but the delivery man called the cops on him after leaving, and Helton was arrested on two charges of aggravated assault.
