Deputies: Holiday man 'became enraged' when sub shop announcing closing time


Man irate at sub shop closing now in pickle

At 11 p.m. Friday inside Great Subs, Robert W. Schulz was told to finish his meal because the shop was closing.

Schulz, according to authorities, did not react well to this.

He "became enraged," the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said, lifted and broke a table that had been bolted to the floor at the restaurant at 1802 U.S. 19 and punched a soda machine.

A deputy responding to the scene found Schulz behind the restaurant and asked him about the incident. Schulz said he may have broken the table, but he forgot, the report states.

According to deputies, Schulz also forgot about a bag of marijuana he had hidden inside his underwear until he was being processed at the Pasco jail.

Schulz, of Holiday, was charged with criminal mischief, introduction of contraband into a facility and possession of marijuana. He remained Tuesday at the Pasco jail in lieu of $1,800 bail.
