Man threatens Texas Walmart checkout clerk with handgun

Occurred November 10, 2012.

20-year-old James Dale Carroll went up to a checkout line in a Walmart in Bryan, Texas, with a toy in his hands.  He became agitated at the checkout person, then pulled a gun on him, then threatened to shoot the clerk if he called police.

Carroll was arrested in the parking lot.

From an article:

Police arrested 20-year-old James Dale Carroll at about 1:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the Briarcrest Drive store after finding a gun at his feet when he got out of a vehicle, according to a police report. 
Carroll was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. 
He was also charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon. 
Officers said Carroll refused to comply with their commands and refused to give them his name after they confronted him. 
Two people he was with in the vehicle told police they were asked by another person to pick Carroll up at Wal-Mart because he was "acting crazy," the report says. 
A cashier told police Carroll got in the checkout lane and began asking about a toy in his hand. Carroll asked the cashier if he had any kids, and then became upset when the cashier said no. 
Carroll asked the cashier if he "wanted any," pointed the gun at him, then left, warning the clerk he would shoot him if he called the police, according to the report. 
The store manager on duty told an officer that Carroll appeared to be intoxicated.
