So this happened.

A white Florida man who has clearly been watching way too much Batman (or George Zimmerman) decided to tackle a black man he spotted walking into Walmart with a gun holstered on his hip.

Now that man, 43-year-old Michael Foster, is being charged with one count of battery for bulldozing Clarence Daniels — a 62-year-old man who had a license to carry the weapon.

Daniels was in Walmart to pick up coffee creamer for his wife. Far cry from whatever Foster was thinking.

From My Fox Tampa Bay:

Foster followed Daniels into the store, put him in a choke-hold and brought him to the ground, the sheriff’s office said. He then started yelling that Daniels had a gun.

A struggle ensued, with Daniels yelling that he had a permit. Security detained both men until deputies arrived.

They confirmed Daniels had a permit for the gun, and arrested Foster.

We’ll refrain from speculating if Foster was actually well-intentioned or racially profiling (sound off in the comments below), but maybe he should leave the apprehending to the cops.

On second thought…maybe not. Especially not in Walmart.
