Posted on 08/14/2011 3:28:47 PM PDT by nickcarraway
A 36-year-old man accused of assaulting a 66-year-old woman inside a Walmart remains in the Sarasota County jail today in lieu of $10,000 bail.
Venice Police arrested Steven Renard Grant on a charge of battery on a person 65 or older late Tuesday night.
Officers say that Grant approached the woman inside Walmart, 17000 Tamiami Trail, and claimed to work for God. When the woman told him she did not think so, Grant reportedly told her she was going to Hell, screamed profanities at her, pushed her shopping cart and started throwing potatoes from the produce section at her.
Other customers reportedly came to the woman's aid until police arrived.
LOL! Post of the day. Thanks.
All of the fun people seem to live in Florida! ;-)
Obviously a nut case. You get a better trajectory with bananas.

We’ve got more than our fair share in Hawaii too.
I hate to admit it, but this post made me laugh LOLOL!
Honestly.. who among us hasn’t thrown potatoes at the hellbound in Walmart?
I know I have, and I’ve seen it done often.
It’s the Lord’s work.
I think this is called a “Code Idaho” in Walmart intercom lingo.
A “Salt and Buttery” with Potatoes!
He’s living in his own private Idaho.
Attention shoppers! Mr Potato Head on Isle 3.....
A lot of people are struggling and hurting out there. They have no money so they become ostracized by friends and family. No job, no hope. No more house/apt/condo. They don't know where to turn.
The deep emotions that inevitably surface appear irrational and usually come at an inopportune time.
Again, what he did was downright wrong but there's probably more to the story.
Probably the story is that the guy is a loony and should have been placed in an institution years ago.
Going to Wal-Marts produce section and throwing potatos at old people is wrong? Against the law?
Can’t do anything for fun any more.
Was either drugs or alcohol maybe involved???
if i were there...
i’d consider sending him to the Boss’ office
I’m chuckin taters fer God.
Are ya with me brothers and sisters?
Wow, that guy’s a real spud.
