HASTINGS, Fla. – Whether you find it frustrating or flattering that someone thinks you look underage, getting carded while buying booze is a rite of passage.
It almost goes without saying that, unless you look prehistoric, bartenders, bouncers and store clerks will check ID. Showing up without it is a good way to go home emptyhanded.
That’s what happened to a guy trying to buy a six pack of beer from a Circle K in Hastings. Without identification, he was turned away. But he took it all in stride and calmly returned with his ID.
Ah, who are we kidding? Of course that’s not how things went down. In reality, he lost his cool, then punted a "Wet Floor" sign into the glass door and shattered it as he stormed out of the business.
Because nothing screams "I'm an adult" quite like roundhousing an inanimate object into oblivion.
The whole tantrum was captured on surveillance video, which the store was all too happy to share with the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office. Now, deputies are hoping you can help identify him.

ATTEMPT TO IDENTIFY THIS GUY - If you are going to go buy beer, ALWAYS bring your ID. This guy didn't have his on him, and he was not happy when a Circle K gas station in Hastings refused to sell him alcohol without one. To show his frustration, he kicked a "wet floor" sign, and not only did it startle other shoppers, it shattered the glass door. He then drove off in his black car. If you can identify the man in this video, please contact Deputy Almaguer at email@example.com or you can call us at 824-8304.Posted by St. Johns County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday, July 23, 2019
