    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) - A man from Tennessee was arrested in Kentucky after reportedly pulling a gun on a man because he and his wife were wearing MAGA hats.

    According to the report from Bowling Green Police, 57-year-old James Phillips was wearing a "veterans hat" inside a local Sam's Club when he passed the couple wearing "Make America Great Again" hats.

    Phillips told police he flipped them off because of the hats they were wearing then walked off. The husband then approached Phillips, flipped him back off and put his hands in his face according to police.

    Phillips then backed away and the two argued verbally until witnesses say Phillips pulled a gun.

    Police say Phillips and his mother left the store and were followed by the couple to the parking lot where the dispute continued. Phillips and witnesses claimed the couple was harassing him while he was putting groceries in his car and he told the wife "it's a good day to die b****."

    Police arrived on scene and separated the parties. Police found a Glock .40 caliber in his rear pocket and two more magazines in another pocket. Phillips has a concealed carry permit in the state of Tennessee.

    Phillips was booked into the Warren County Jail on a charge of 1st degree wanton endangerment.
