(Newser) – "Vladimir Putin" showed up at a Florida Publix last week and started screaming at employees, police tell WPTV. No, not that Vladimir Putin. Police say a 48-year-old man claiming to have the same name as the Russian leader refused a manager's request to leave the West Palm Beach grocery store on Aug. 21 after yelling at employees on two occasions. He later told police he'd missed his ride and wasn't going anywhere, authorities tell the Palm Beach Post. He's charged with trespassing and resisting an officer without violence.
