A 55-year-old Manatee County man was not happy when his furniture didn’t arrive on time so he pulled a gun on the delivery men, stating, “You know, I’ve shot people for less,” according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

Mitchell Helton was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on Aug. 3 and remains in the Manatee County jail on bonds totaling $5,000.

Deputies say the delivery men notified Helton ahead of time that they were on their way with the furniture he ordered from Furniture Warehouse. According to the report, the delivery men arrived to find the front door ajar and the men called out to Helton who immediately told them he was upset that it had taken so long to receive his delivery.
