BRANDON, Fla. (AP) - A man is accused of attacking another man who had a handgun in a holster as he shopped in a Tampa area Wal-Mart store.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office says 43-year-old Michael Foster faces battery charges for attacking Clarence Daniels on Tuesday.

The Tampa Tribune (http://bit.ly/1xxp13Z ) reports Foster saw Daniels in the parking lot and noticed he had a gun in a holster. He followed Daniels into the store. An arrest report indicated Foster grabbed Daniels from behind in a choke hold. They fell to the ground and Foster yelled that Daniels had a gun. Daniels shouted that he had a concealed weapons permit.

Officials say Foster never called 911 or alerted store security about his concerns.

Foster remains in jail. It wasn’t known whether he’s hired a lawyer.
