Palo Alto CA Feb 8 2019
A 27-year-old Palo Alto man accused of being unruly inside a Mountain View Kohl's before swinging a bottle of alcohol at a security guard was arrested last week, according to police.
A member of the store's security staff told police that the man was verbally harassing employees and customers inside the store on the 300 block of Showers Drive during the afternoon on Jan. 22.
The man eventually left the store, only to fall asleep outside along the side of the building. When asked to leave, the suspect began swearing at the security staffer, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.
The suspect reportedly swung a bottle of alcohol "a handful of times" at the store's security guard and also spat on him, Nelson said.
The man had left the area by the time officers arrived, but was located at an apartment complex on the 400 block of Del Medio Avenue, a few blocks away from the shopping center.
The man was identified as the suspect and was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and battery.
