A run-of-the-mill arrest for trespassing normally doesn't make international news - except when you share your name with one of the most powerful men in the world.

Florida police arrested Vladimir Putin at a grocery store where he allegedly began yelling at employees on West Palm Beach.

The store's managers tried to get Putin to leave, but he refused, US news outlet CBS12 reports.

He told police he'd missed his ride and also refused to give officers his name.

The man's been charged with resisting arrest.
