A Chicago man was extremely infuriated upon learning he was to pay a 22-Cent tax on a soft drink beverage. The tax amount on the $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi was enough to drive him to pull a loaded submachine gun out of his waistband and threaten to shoot all occupants inside the store.
Nahshon Shelton, 36, was soon arrested and charged with aggravated assault, unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and having an invalid Firearm Owners Identification card, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Shelton’s alleged reasoning for his violent outburst, police say, was that he was “tax-exempt” due to it being his neighborhood, according to the Sun-Times.
The incident was caught on surveillance, according to CBS Chicago.
Shelton is being held without bail, NBC Chicago reports.
