A Milwaukee man is facing charges after he began beating up Best Buy employees because they didn’t give him a job even though he said President Barack Obama had “ordered” that “Best Buy needed to hire more black people.”
Woodrow W. Cain, 47, was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Friday with three counts of battery and one count of disorderly conduct for attacking employees at Best Buy located at N95W16855 Richfield Way, Menomonee Falls. If convicted, he faces up to 30 months in prison and $31,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, on July 30, Cain drove to the Best Buy and parked his Porsche in the walking area directly in front of the store’s doors and walked inside. After an employee told him he was illegally parked, Cain began asking loudly for all the managers in the store.
Cain then pushed the employee and punched him in the chest while shouting profanities. Another employee tried to help the one being attacked, but Cain grabbed the other man around the neck and began pushing him backwards while calling them “racists.”
Cain then choked a third man in the store, while claiming the president had ordered Best Buy to hire more black people.
The complaint states Cain had recently applied for a position at the store and were able to identify him by his application.
Cain is free from Waukesha County Jail on a $5,000 signature bond.
