MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

A Rutherford County judge has been accused of verbally assaulting a teenage boy at a Murfreesboro grocery store last week.

The alleged incident occurred at Jr's Foodland on March 26 as Judge Larry Brandon was checking out to purchase his items.

According to the police report, a 16-year-old boy who works as a grocery bagger noticed two items already inside the judge's shopping bag.

When the teen mentioned the items to the clerk, Judge Brandon is accused of threatening to "cut his a#$," the report states.

The report says the judge is also accused of asking the teen his name as he left the store and saying, "If I cut you and you die and I go to jail, I got your name."

According to police and store employees, the incident was captured on video surveillance but without sound.

After the alleged threats, the teenage boy reportedly went home and told his father what happened.  His father then went to the store the following day to gather information on his own before requesting police file a warrant against Judge Brandon.

No arrests have been made and the case remains open.  Murfreesboro police are conducting an investigation into the allegations.

Jr's Foodland owner Andy Haynes told the reporting officer that the judge is banned from his store pending the outcome of the investigation.
