Man arrested after screaming at customers at Publix in The Villages

Sean Rigsby

A man was arrested after screaming at customers at a Publix grocery store in The Villages.

Lady Lake police were called at 10:20 a.m. to the Publix at La Plaza Grande, where officers found 28-year-old Sean Rigsby screaming at random people in the parking lot.

Several witnesses told police Rigsby, who lives in the Hidden Oaks subdivision in Lady Lake, had been in the store screaming obscenities, according to the arrest report.

Rigsby was asked by management to leave the store, but he became more irate and began trying to pick fights outside the front entrance. Rigsby “was seen getting into a female’s face, screaming at her,” and calling her obscene names. He also used profanity toward an employee on a cigarette break.

Rigsby was arrested on a charge of breach of the peace and booked at the Lake County Jail on $500 bond.

In 2017, he was arrested after he entered a home from which he had been banned.

He was arrested in 2015 after reportedly helping himself to his mother’s checkbook.

In 2008, he was arrested on a charge of battery. In 2009, he was twice arrested for violating his probation. In 2010, he was charged with violating a court order for protection against domestic violence, resisting a police officer and battery. In 2011, he was again arrested for violating his probation. In 2012, he was arrested on charges of grand theft, dealing in stolen property and obstructing justice.
