CLEARWATER – Clearwater police arrested Albert Williams, 36, of Clearwater on April 7 after he allegedly showed up at his former place of employment with what appeared to be a rifle, according to a police report. Williams was fired from CCS Inc. the night before, the report said.
Williams showed up at 1608 Fort Harrison Ave. a little after 8:30 a.m. to find out why he was fired, the report said. He allegedly got into an argument with other employees after he left the business saying, “I got something for you,” according to police. He went to his car and pulled out a weapon with a scope, put it on his shoulder and began pointing it at employees through the windows, the report said. The terrified employees ran out the back door and called police, and Williams fled the scene, police said. He was later caught and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. The weapon turned out to be a pellet gun.
Williams is being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bond.
