A Fort Pierce man was arrested for disturbing the peace at a Walgreens because the store didn't sell his favorite beverage, police said.

Richard Lloyd, 60, was arrested July 4 for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after he was asked repeatedly to stop rearranging merchandise, according to a recently released arrest affidavit obtained by TCPalm.

The manager told police he noticed Lloyd causing a disturbance with an employee at about 3 a.m. He said he was angry because the store didn't sell his favorite beverage, which was never disclosed, the affidavit said.

Lloyd presented a bottle of soda and started to yell, "This is what you need to sell" and "I want my money back."

He then demanded a refund for a beverage he didn't buy, the affidavit said.

A cashier told police that Lloyd started yelling profanity at an employee who wasn't present.

He said, "Althea is a b*****," according to the affidavit.

The cashier also told police that Lloyd would grab stocked items and move them across the store. She asked him several times to leave the store, but he refused and continued to move merchandise, the affidavit said.

Police found Lloyd shortly after in the parking lot near the entrance. They said he appeared agitated and started cursing at the officer who was trying to arrest him.

Lloyd was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting without violence. He was taken to jail and is currently being held on a $3,000 bond, according to online jail records.
