Vladimir Putin was arrested Tuesday.

It wasn't the Russian president. But a man with the same name was taken into custody at a Florida supermarket, WPEC-TV reported.

Police in West Palm Beach, Florida, said Putin was yelling at employees inside a Publix grocery store. He was then asked to leave but refused.

Putin was then arrested for trespassing. He was also charged with resisting/obstructing an officer without violence.

Putin had reportedly missed his ride home from the supermarket just before the bizarre incident.
