    San Diego County man arrested after threats to Wal-Mart employees
    The Associated Press


    SANTEE, Calif. -- A man who became enraged and fired shots after employees at two San Diego-area Wal-Mart stores refused to exchange his ammunition was arrested Sunday after an all-night standoff with a SWAT team at his mobile home, authorities said.

    Milton Watkins, 52, went to a Lakeside Wal-Mart with the ammo at about 8 p.m. Saturday, Lt. Hope Andrews of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said. After being informed by employees that it's against corporate policy to accept returned ammunition, he became irate and threatened the employees, promising to return to kill them all.

    One employee wrote down Watkins' license plate number as he drove away, Andrews said.

    Watkins later appeared at a Wal-Mart in Santee with the same request and was again turned away. He threatened to shoot the store's employees, walked out to retrieve and load his gun, and fired shots into the air before driving away, witnesses told deputies.

    Watkins was traced to a Santee mobile home community. He refused to come out of his home and a SWAT team and negotiators were called about midnight. By early morning, those efforts had failed and tear gas was fired into the trailer.

    Deputies arrested Watkins around 7:50 a.m., and recovered his shotgun. He was charged with firing it in a negligent manner, along with threats of violence and battery, Andrews said.

    Had a dumbass come into the local sporting goods store and ask for "deer bullets". He threw a hissy fit when he was asked "What kind? 30-30? 30-06?" "NO! I WANT DEER BULLETS!"
