Man Thrown Out Of Mid-State Mall For Inappropriate T-Shirt

Posted: Updated:

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – A man was thrown out of a mid-state mall for allegedly wearing a t-shirt referencing the tragedy in Connecticut.

Stanley Bryce Myszka, 45, was charged with false report and criminal trespass. According to the Daily News Journal, he wore a t-shirt that read "Has your gun killed a kindergartner today?"

Police reports indicated the incident happened Saturday at the Stones River Mall in Murfreesboro, only a day after the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Mall security asked Myszka to wear his shirt inside out or take it off entirely because it was creating a disturbance and violating mall policy. Myszka reportedly refused and mall security escorted him out.

Stones River Mall officials issued this statement: "Stones River Mall strictly enforces a code of conduct to ensure the safety of mall shoppers and tenants and his t-shirt and disruptive behavior was in direct violation of this code. He was arrested by police and has been banned from the shopping center." 

Myszka told the newspaper he made the t-shirt inside the mall to convey a political message about gun control.

Police said Myszka's false report charge stemmed from lies he told about how he got to the mall in the first place, which was by driving on a revoked license.
