SARASOTA, Fla. – An 83-year-old Florida man is accused of attacking an event salesman at a car dealership after becoming angry over the prize he won during a promotion.
The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports that Linsey D. Owens is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after the Wednesday evening incident.
A police report said Owens was presented with a $5 Walmart gift card at a Sarasota car dealership promotional event. He apparently argued with employees and left without the card.
He returned and bumped his car into Robertson, then grabbed a golf club and hit Robertson on the face and arms, police said.
Authorities said Owens wanted a bigger prize advertised on the promotional fliers, not the gift card.
A lawyer for Owens wasn't listed on jail records.
