When one employee looked out the door to watch Foubister get into his SUV, the employee told investigators Foubister pulled out a handgun and pointed at him while threatening him.

A patron went out to make sure Foubister didn't his his vehicle as he exited the parking lot.  He told a deputy that Foubister pointed a gun at him as well.

Deputies arrived on the scene and stopped the suspect at Palm Beach Boulevard and Davis Boulevard.
