As the men began to unload the furniture, Helton reemerged with a gun and pointed it at both men, reportedly saying, "You know, I've shot people for less," the affidavit said.
The men explained to Helton he could file a complaint and gave him a company information card. They continued to unpack and deliver the furniture, the Herald reported, but called authorities afterward.
Helton told deputies he was startled by someone trying to enter his home and retrieved his weapon to defend himself, according to the affidavit. Helton admitted he took the gun outside to confront the delivery men but could not explain why he did not call 911 if he feared for his safety, the newspaper reported.
