A man was arrested after he threatened a convenience store employee with a 4-foot tree branch, Oklahoma City police said.

Marvin Glenn Jones, 53, was arrested on an assault and battery complaint Tuesday at 7-Eleven, 1101 NW 10.

Police were called to the scene and encountered a man who called himself “General Jones” who verbally abused the officers, according to the police report.

The 7-Eleven employee told police Jones was banned from the store Tuesday after making death threats against the store's manager, but returned that evening.

The employee told Jones to leave and refused to serve him. Jones went outside and came back inside with a tree branch, according to the report.

The employee told police Jones raised the branch and approached him, saying, “Come here man, I'm going to use this on you.”

Police said Jones tried to light himself on fire while in the back of the patrol car and said, “A bomb is about to go off in this (obscenity).”

He was taken to Oklahoma County jail, where it took three to four detention officers to process him, police said.

Police took the tree branch as evidence.
