Earlier this week, police in Tallahassee, Florida arrested Jared Simpson, a 24-year-old man who attempted to pay his $10 bar tab at 4th Quarter Bar & Grill with a rock, according to The Huffington Post.
According to the police affidavit, “after [Simpson’s waitress] told Simpson she would not accept a rock as payment, Simpson threw a ripped up dollar bill at her and said ‘he would pay [her] in other ways.’”
After leaving the bar and returning with a credit card that did not work, Simpson again left the bar and came back. This time, Simpson arrived with a briefcase in hand, which he set down in the bar, warning, “anyone who goes near this will die.”
Police who arrived on the scene instructed remaining witnesses to leave the area, and quickly arrested Simpson. A bomb squad investigator determined that the briefcase did not contain a bomb.
Simpson is currently in custody, and a judge has ordered that a psychiatric evaluation be completed before he can submit a bail of $30,500.
