A manager at a Hobby Lobby in Alabama called the police on a black customer after he tried to return a defective item because they claimed he looked like someone who was attempting to return stolen goods.

Birmingham’s WVTM reported that customer Brian Spurlock both had his receipt and was well within the store’s 90-day return police when he brought the goods he wished to return to the Hobby Lobby location in Trussville. Nevertheless, the store’s manager would not let him return the most expensive of the items that Spurlock said was defective because it had already been opened.

The manager then called the police, and Spurlock told WVTM they threatened to charge him with trespassing when he asked the officers why they needed to see his identification.

The officers checked his ID and soon after, the customer was given a full refund.

“Everybody do not steal,” Spurlock told WVTM. “Everybody’s not out here killing people. Everybody’s not doing that. Y’all can’t just go off what somebody looks like.”

Much of the incident was captured on video by Spurlock’s girlfriend, which you can watch below:

Speaking with host Alisyn Camerota, Cohen detailed some of the president's financial woes -- saying he is likely headed to personal bankruptcy and even jail ("for a century") because of the massive amount of debt he is carrying -- if he is not re-elected.

Eric Trump awkwardly described himself as a member of the LGBT community on Fox News, setting off some puzzled reactions.

Media Matters researcher Bobby Lewis, who monitors "Fox & Friends" daily, flagged the exchange, which was prompted by a New York Times column about a lesbian woman who supports President Donald Trump.

"The LGBT community, they are incredible," Eric Trump said, "and you should see how they come out in full force for my father every single day. I'm part of that community, and we love the man."

Eric Trump bitterly attacks ‘disgusting’ NYT reporters who exposed his dad’s massive business losses

Published

Eric Trump appeared on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday to bitterly complain about the way his father is being treated by the Internal Revenue Service and the New York Times.

During the appearance, President Donald Trump's second-oldest son attacked the New York Times' explosive reporting on the president avoiding paying federal income tax by reporting massive losses.

Among other things, Trump complained that the article on the president's taxes was too long and detailed, which he said meant it must have been part of a coordinated political attack.

"They've been writing that article for three months and they wanted it to drop the morning before the debate!" he said. "These are disgusting people!"
