HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Henrico Police were called to Kay Jewelers at Short Pump Town Center on Monday to investigate a man accused of disturbing the peace.

The man, according to witnesses, was yelling profanities at shoppers.

But the man was not alone.

According to witnesses, the man was acting like a ventriloquist -- using a puppet -- to yell at shoppers.

The man and his puppet left the property before police arrived, so no charges were filed.

Witnesses can send news tips, photos, and video here.
