I do promotions for drink company, and I demo product at large corporate big box store. We are advised to give free samples to store employees, which is not a problem. Today, an employee kept coming back for free samples, and the third time he came back, he was very condescending about the free samples. Mind you, this was the third time today I had given him a sample. By the fourth time he came around, my co-worker was there helping me, and I tried to apologize about my shortness earlier in the day. He then, in front of customers, my co-worker, and his co-worker, he began to verbally threaten to kill me, to kick my f*****g a**, to rip my f******g head off, the whole nine yards. I tried settling him down at first, then when I realized it was doing no good, I shut up and let him talk. He had to be physically restrained by his coworker, and my coworker. I turned around and starting talking to customers, and he left. All of this was caught on videotape. I was told I would not be able to work at this location anymore due to this. That is going to cost me quite a lot of money, as this is a popular location that I can move my product easily and get bonuses from my company.
The question I have is what should I do? Should I call the cops for assault? I am very concerned that this guy will come after me again, but it's not fair if I did nothing wrong, and I am paying the price by having to go to a smaller volume store. This was an employee of a corporate retail location threating to kill somebody while on the clock, in front of co-workers and customers.
What legal recourse do I have? Please advise. Thanks in advance.
