According to court documents, Calhoun and three other people entered the store on October 5. When a cashier spotted Calhoun leaving the store with a basket full of Chiefs merchandise, she asked him if he needed help checking out. That’s when Calhoun allegedly pointed a gun at her and said, “Naw, I don’t need help checking out,” before leaving the store.

Another witness was able to get a license plate number.

When police pulled Calhoun over, they discovered a Dick’s Sporting Goods basket full of Chiefs items with the security tags still on them. They also discovered a .38 caliber special revolver.

Calhoun admitted to police that he stole a Chiefs jersey from the store and said he was trying to provide for his baby girl. He denied pointing a gun at the cashier.

The merchandise was valued at $1,126. He’s in jail with a $60,000 bond. Online court records don’t show when he’s due in court.
