The bank president called police after the man left the bank. He said he did not want to press charges. However, he asked the sheriff’s office to tell the customer to never return.

A Peoria County Sheriff’s Deputy contacted the man. He explained to the disgruntled man that his behavior was inappropriate. The deputy also explained that the bank was closing the man’s accounts. The bank would also contact him in writing. Law enforcement also told the man not to return to the bank or he would be arrested. The man agreed.
