JOHNSTOWN - A Gloversville man who was working this week temporarily for Walmart was charged Thursday night after allegedly being profane with customers and staff and fighting with police officers.

Fulton County sheriff's deputies said Gregory A. Yearwood, 26, of 19 E. Fulton St., was charged at 7:30 p.m. at the store, 233 Fifth Ave. Ext., with disorderly conduct, trespass and resisting arrest.

Deputies said officers responded for a Walmart employee contracted by a temporary agency who was intoxicated and using loud profanity toward customers and other store employees. When deputies arrived, Yearwood refused to leave and continued with loud profanities. Deputies then advised him he was under arrest. He began to resist and fight with a deputy and a state police trooper before being taken into custody, deputies said.

Yearwood was arraigned in Town Court and sent to the county jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail or $5,000 property bond.
