Columbus police officers were dispatched to the Beechwold post office, 4364 N. High St., at 12:40 p.m. Dec. 23 on a report of a disturbance.

There, police encountered a man who called himself an "independent journalist" and was filming and photographing customers for unknown reasons, reports said.

The manager of the post office reportedly asked the man to leave numerous times before police were called.

Officers removed the man from the property, but he reportedly yelled the manager's name and said, "I'll be back," as he left.
