Meat delivery ends with aggravated assault charges | Crime
(WMC-TV) – Workers trying to deliver a load of meat to a South Memphis home were threatened at gun point and had their truck damaged when they refused to accept a check, according to court records.
Two workers from Iowa Steak Company made a delivery to a home in the 1000 block of Shawnee in April. However, they refused to hand over the merchandise when the woman at the door tried to pay with a check.
The men later told police she had written three bad checks to the company in the past.
After a brief argument with the woman, the workers called police. While they waited, the woman’s husband, Charles Mack, allegedly came outside and threatened them at gunpoint.
But instead of opening fire, police say Mack decided to use his own truck as a weapon. According to the Iowa Steak Company workers, Mack tried to push their truck down the street with his own vehicle.
Mack wasn’t successful in moving the meat truck, but he did succeed in causing more than $500 in damage to the vehicle.
Mack was booked into 201 Poplar Wednesday and is facing aggravated assault and vandalism charges.
