James R Severson | Florida Man August 13

James R Severson Got Grocery Store Road Rage; Runs Into Store Clerk Who Blocked The Aisle, Flashes A Handgun | August 13

Monroe: A Florida Keys man was jailed after police said he threatened to kill a man for blocking an aisle in a Winn-Dixie store and displayed a gun tucked into his waistband. James R. Severson of Big Pine Key said he would shoot the man in the head as he lifted his shirt to show he was armed.

He is also accused of pushing his grocery cart into the man who was restocking shelves with soft drinks around 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Severson told Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputies he was walking down an aisle that was blocked by a man stocking shelves so he “bumped” the man with his cart to let him know he wanted to get through.

He and the man “had an exchange of words,” and the man took an “aggressive stance,” and Severson feared the man would attack him so he pulled up his shirt to show his handgun tucked into his waistband.

Security footage shows Severson pushing his cart into the man, who was pushed forward and slightly thrown off balance. That’s when Severson displayed the handgun and lifted it a few inches out of the holster but kept the barrel in the holster.

James R Severson was arrested on a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill and misdemeanor charges of battery and improperly displaying a firearm.
