    PARKLAND, Wash. - A teenager angry after he was refused service at a drive up coffee stand is behind bars for allegedly threatening employees with a laser pointer.

    According to a probable cause affidavit, Trenton Demoor, 18, walked up to the window at a coffee shop in Parkland around midnight Friday and was refused service because the business is drive through only.

    The affidavit states Demoor became upset and started screaming at employees. 

    Documents said when the driver of a car asked Demoor what the argument was about, he pointed a laser at the driver and four pasengers and yelled, "you guys want to get shot?"

    One occupant of the car told investigators the laser caused her eye pain and another claimed he was temporarily blinded, according to the affidavit.

    Demoor was arrested on five counts of illegally discharging a laser and possession of methamphetamines.

    He pleaded not guilty and bail was set at $30,000.
