BEAUMONT (AP) - Police have cited an 18-year-old Beaumont man who riled and worried passing motorists by standing at an intersection dressed as a banana with an assault rifle slung across his back.

Beaumont Police said in a statement on Saturday that officers determined the man was advertising for a local tactical and security store. The rifle had a drum magazine with a 50-round capacity.

Police briefly detained the man and cited him for violating a city ordinance prohibiting soliciting alongside roadways. Police had received multiple reports from concerned citizens.
