A Florida man became enraged and used his gun to threaten another customer who asked him to stop acting like a jerk at an Applebee’s restaurant.

Authorities said Walter Kaufman Jr. was giving a waitress a hard time at the Port Charlotte eatery when another man asked him to leave her alone, reported WBBH-TV.

The 47-year-old Kaufman showed a gun in his waistband and threatened to shoot the other man, investigators said.

The manager called 911 and sheriff’s deputies arrested the North Port man.

The station reported that Kaufman’s mugshot was not available because he was a former law enforcement officer, although no other details were reported about his work history.

Kaufman, who was jailed on $100,000 bond, currently works for the Charlotte County Utilities.

"Well, he is," Trump agreed. "He was best friends with every segregationist ever to walk the halls of Congress."

"But he's going to fix those issues now, right?" he added sarcastically. "Now he's going to fix racial tensions in America. Why did you wait 47 years, Joe? You know, if you really cared, if you thought it was something you were going to campaign on, maybe you would have utilized, I don't know, your 38 years in the United States Senate."
