Grocery store bagger says judge threatened to 'cut' him

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

A Middle Tennessee judge has been banned from a grocery store after a worker there said the man threatened him.

A 16-year-old employee at Junior's Foodland in Murfreesboro was bagging groceries on Friday when a shopper had brought in his own bags.

According to a police report, the teenager noticed some items already in the bag, so he handed them to the cashier, thinking they had not been scanned.

That's when the customer said he bought the items somewhere else and allegedly told the worker to put them back in the bag before he "cut" him.

The bagger and other witnesses told police the man threatened the employee a few more times before leaving.

The teen went home and told his dad what had happened, and the father called police.

During the investigation, police showed the teen and his father a picture of Judge Larry Brandon, and the teen identified the judge as the man who threatened him.

The boy's father said he will pursue the matter, although no warrant has been issued for Brandon's arrest.

Judge Brandon was also in the news last year after an incident at a Hobby Lobby store, when a man who had gone before the judge in a home foreclosure case attacked Brandon and the judge fought back.
