"Here's Your Grey Poupon"

The Smoking Gun reports that a Utah man was arrested last week after he had a more than novel response for two pranksters who had jokingly mocked the ever popular and often hilariously replicated Grey Poupon commercial shown above.

The man, Vitaly Kovtun, was allegedly stopped at a light in Salt Lake City, Utah when two pranksters pulled up to his car. The passenger, Stephen Cox, rolled down his window and inquired, "Excuse me, sir, do you have any Grey Poupon?" Kovtun responded, police charge, by pulling a handgun from his glove compartment, cocking the weapon, pointing it at the prankster's auto, and directing "Here's your Grey Poupon, roll your f***ing windows up."

Kovtun was arrested after one of the pranksters copied down his license plate. He was charged with one count of aggravated assault, a third-degree felony under Utah law. A copy of the probable cause affidavit can be read here.
