A Walnut Hill man with a failure to appear warrant in Florida found himself headed to jail Thursday on drug charges after losing his temper on the phone with his credit card company, according to an arrest report from the Escambia County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office.



Kevin Foster Bey, 50, of North Cypress Street in Walnut Hill, was taken into custody Thursday at approximately 12:57 a.m. at a Race Way gas station on Airport Boulevard in Pensacola after his phone conversation led witnesses to call in a disturbance.
According to the report, Bey was found pumping gas into a white Dodge Ram with a trailer attached and told deputies he was yelling at his credit card company.

Following a routine check with dispatch that revealed Bey had an open warrant for a failure to appear in court, a search led deputies to the discovery of bag of marijuana, two “marijuana cigarettes” and  several “rock like substances,” which tested positive as cocaine.
