LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a 48-year-old man demanded to bring his Starbucks coffee into a local cheerleading competition -- and when a law enforcement officer refused to allow it, he took matters into his own hands.

It happened on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 23, just after 9 a.m. at PRP High School. Police say 48-year-old Clayton S. Weaver was attending a cheerleading competition, when he was asked not to bring his Starbucks coffee into the venue.

According to the arrest report, Weaver became "verbally loud and combative" and told a nearby law enforcement officer, "I don't have to talk to you!" He also allegedly pushed the officer away.

Police say that after Weaver was told he was under arrest, he became "resistive" to being taken into custody, and an off-duty police officer assisted Louisville Metro Police in subduing him.

Police say Weaver caused, "annoyance and alarm" to the people at the cheerleading competition, and later told an officer, "I thought you were a security guard."

He was arrested and charged with third degree assault, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and criminal trespassing.
