A Florida man may face battery charges after allegedly pelting pharmacy workers with Snickers candy bars during a dispute over their refusal to sell him cigarettes.
In the early morning hours of September 4, a male customer walked into a Walgreens in Clearwater to purchase a pack of cigarettes. He approached the checkout counter and asked the employee for a pack of 305 brand cigarettes.
Walgreens has a policy requiring identification for the purchase of cigarettes, and the clerk asked the man to display his card. It was reported that he did not have his legal ID on him at the time, but he had a photograph of the card. He presented the picture, but the employee said they were unable to accept anything other than the ID itself.
