(Newser) – The sign said 20 items or less, so 77-year-old William Golladay started counting. When the shopper ahead of him placed 22 items on the belt, police say Golladay wigged out on the 65-year-old man, reports NBC Miami. He yelled, he got in his face, and, finally, he jammed his own shopping cart into the man's elbow, say police in Florida's Charlotte County. (The victim was in a motorized scooter.) Walmart managers escorted Golladay from the store, but he returned "with both fists raised," says the police report cited by the Smoking Gun. Managers again intervened, the police arrived, and Golladay now faces felony charges of battery on a person 65 or older who just happens to be 12 years his junior.
