    Details:

    On January 20, 2015 at approximately 11:58 a.m., deputies responded to the Wal-mart located at 11110 Causeway Boulevard in reference to incident that had occurred in the store. It was learned that the suspect had observed the victim getting out of his vehicle in the parking lot and saw that the victim was in possession of a handgun (under his coat and in a holster). The suspect followed the victim through the parking lot and into the store where the suspect then attacked the victim. At no time did the suspect call 911 or alert store security until after he attacked the victim.

    Once inside the store, Foster approached Daniels from behind, placed him in chock-hold and took him to the ground against his will and without permission. A brief struggle ensued inside the store.

    When Foster attacked the victim he began yelling that Daniels had a gun. Daniels in fact has a concealed weapons permit and during the struggle he continued yelling that he had a permit. Both individuals were detained until deputies arrived on scene.

    Deputies arrived on scene and confirmed that Clarence Daniels does have a concealed weapons permit. Foster was taken into custody and charged with battery.
