San Antonio, Texas members of Open Carry Texas were placed under non-custodial arrest for openly carrying weapons at a local Starbuck’s coffee shop, even though their display was within Texas law.
Also, Starbucks allows customers to openly carry weapons in their outlets so long as it’s in conformity with state and local law. Texas law allows its citizens to openly carry weapons as long as they’re unloaded — these weapons were, according to KENS Channel 5 News.
So what was the problem?
San Antonio police Chief William McManus explained Texas law also provides that if anyone feels threatened by the open display of weapons, the person carrying can be charged with disorderly conduct.
“It’s a disorderly offense that officers will address accordingly,” McManus said.
A full 23-minute video of the incident was posted on YouTube.
Police eventually showed up after they received a call from a woman who claimed she was “freaked out” by the display of weapons. Officers approached the men, questioned them about the situation and told the gun holders they needed to leave.
