Customer’s ‘Yapping’ Leads to Armed Confrontation
Buford man said another man pointed a gun at him during a confrontation at a Dacula QuikTrip.
A 54-year-old Buford man claims a pistol-bearing older man assaulted him during a Christmas Eve confrontation at a Dacula QuikTrip.
The Buford man told police he won a prize in a scratch-off lottery game at the Hamilton Mill Parkway QuikTrip and walked up to the counter to inform the clerk. He then reportedly heard another customer ask the clerk to speak louder because of the “yapping.”
According to the police report, the Buford man took offense and replied, “Dogs yap, I’m a grown man.”
At that point, the other customer allegedly told the Buford man to shut up. The Buford man responded by telling the man to perform a physically impossible sexual act and walked outside.
The Buford man was still standing outside the QuikTrip when the other customer walked by and “muttered something to him.” The Buford man asked if the other customer had something to say, at which point the other customer reportedly walked to his black Porsche Cayman, pulled out a black semiautomatic pistol and pointed it at the Buford man.
“The [Buford man] then ran to his truck and got his gun. The suspect then drove off,” the officer wrote in the incident report.
A clerk at the store corroborated the Buford man’s account of what transpired in the store and added that as the Buford man was walking outside, the customer said the man should walk way because he had “an equalizer” and would “light his ass.”
The Porsche-driving customer was described as an older white man, approximately 5-foot-8, weighing 160 pounds.
The case is listed as active.
