A Clearwater man is facing a felony charge after police say he threatened to shoot up his dentist’s office after a disagreement about his dentures.

Bruce G. Clark, 66, was booked at the Pinellas County jail Wednesday on a charge of making threats of violence with a firearm. Bail was set at $10,000 and Clark was being held at the jail Thursday.

According to an arrest report, Clark sent his sister to his dentist’s office on Jan. 5 to pick up a pair of dentures that had been made for him. The office told the woman that she could not pick up the dentures for another patient, reports state.

The sister then put Clark on the phone.

“During the conversation (Clark) was belligerent and used foul language,” the arresting officer wrote in the report. “He told the victim 'I ought to come down there and shoot up all you motherf-----s.”

The officer noted that this put the victim in fear and that she was “constantly looking out the window for his vehicle while working since this occurred.”
