Shoppers got more than they bargained for Thursday at the Promenade in west Little Rock after police showed up to find man waving a flag outside the Nike store.
“Now what better place to wave the flag than right here in front of the Nike store,” Jimmie Cavin can be heard saying in a video he posted to Facebook.
Cameras captured Cavin sitting outside the store with a blue-line flag fluttering in the wind.
“It was lunchtime, so they were full and I know people were watching from over there,” Cavin said in an interview on Friday.
“My priority is supporting law enforcement, firefighters and paramedics.”
Cavin tells us, he sat on his tailgate and didn’t say anything to anybody.
“I guess probably 15 minutes into it, a Little Rock patrol car pulled up,” Cavin says.
According to a police report, Cavin showed us, officers showed up after a store manager reported a disturbance.
“Of course, we chatted,” Cavin says.
“He realized I wasn’t doing anything wrong.”
Cavin says, almost as quickly as they arrived, police left.
“So, Nike called the police on the guy supporting the police for supporting the police,” Cavin says.
