LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A smoke shop employee is in trouble with the law after police say he pulled a gun during a dispute with a customer.

It happened Sept. 12 at the Smoke Shoppe II at 1850 south Hurstbourne Parkway. According to the arrest slip, 25-year-old Tariq L. Bayoud was arguing with four people when he pulled the weapon and pointed it in their direction.

Police arrested Bayoud for violating a DVO which stated he could not possess firearms. The next day, police learned the gun was stolen during a burglary in Florida in 2007.

He was subsequently arrested on September 16 and charged with receiving stolen property.
