Posted: Updated:

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - An Arkansas man has been charged with banging on a drive-thru window and saying it was time for him to start killing people.

Murfreesboro police say 58-year-old Richard Shultz of Little Rock pulled into a Wendy's Thursday night and told a staff member "he killed people for a living and that it was time to begin."

The Daily News Journal reported (http://on.dnj.com/1wwnpZs ) that police found Shultz outside the restaurant, where he denied threatening anyone, But, officers say, Shultz did say he had consumed several drinks earlier in the evening.

Shultz was arrested on counts of public intoxication and failure to appear in court on a prior charge.

Shultz was booked into the Rutherford County jail Thursday night on $5,250 bond.
