The patron eventually pushed Burton and told him to keep away from him.  The Sheriff says that’s when Burton went out to his truck.

At that point, Burton left Stinky Mulligans and went home.  After deputies reviewed some video tape at the  business and talked to witnesses, deputies went to Burton’s house and he was arrested on a charge of  assault with a deadly weapon.
