Ocala, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Frankie Lewis, a 48 year old Florida man has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after police say he threatened bystanders with a knife when he wasn't able to get butter during a church buffet on Sunday.
According to Ocala authorities, Lewis became enraged and pulled a knife on a church congregation during a Sunday morning buffet.
Authorities say the incident occurred when the man demanded butter while serving himself at the buffet line. When he could not get any, he pulled a knife on members of the congregation and said he would cut them, according to Sgt. Angy Scroble of the Ocala Police Department.
"As he put the knife back in his pocket, a church member hit him with a wooden board," said Scroble. The man then fled the church on a bicycle, however officers in the area caught him a short time later.
Lewis was booked into the Marion County Jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond was set at $2,000.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
Lewis models exactly the kind of hot headed, blunder-brained, asshats that fit our site mission perfectly. Egocentric, loose canons such as Lewis are here to remind us that no matter how crazy you think your coworker, boss, or in-laws are..... There's always someone out there who needs a kick in the ass with a pair of pointy-toed cowboy boots much a little more desperately.
