A man was arrested for attempted to shoot a teenage boy who refused to accept counterfeit money as payment. The incident took place at Roosevelt Avenue, San Antonia, Texas on April 24 (Friday).

The accused, identified as 39-year-old Paul Ybarra, along with an unidentified man drove to produce stand near Loop 410 and Roosevelt Avenue to purchase a watermelon. However, instead of using real money, they had tried to purchase it with a fake $20 bill.

When the 11-year-old boy working at the produce stand refused to accept the counterfeit money and returned it, Ybarra lost his temper and walked back to his SUV to grab his handgun. He returned to the produce stand and attempted to shoot the young boy but failed to do so as the gun was jammed.

According to documents, Ybarra along with the other man got into the vehicle and fled from the scene after the incident. Some of the witnesses present at the scene had managed to take photographs of the suspects.

Later, the owner of the produce stand shared the photographs with the local businesses in the area in hopes of recognizing the men. One individual was able to recognize Ybarra and informed the owner about his whereabouts, after which, the police officers successfully apprehended him.

He was arrested and charged with three counts of deadly conduct with a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bail was set at $250,000.

In a similar incident that took place earlier this year, a man was arrested for paying for Girl Scout cookies using counterfeit money. The incident took place outside a Walmart at Salem, Oregon. The accused, identified as 36-year-old Camden Ducharme, was arrested and charged with forgery and theft following the incident.
