Sometimes people will say Mr. without a last name in informal situations while trying to be funny, sarcastic, or to show their anger at someone.
I watched a Seinfeld rerun last night and Elaine calls a random guy at a bar "Mr." without adding a last name, and she's trying to shock the guy with her attitude towards the guy.
Although I'm not suggesting we should reinvent the wheel of standard American English, we have to leave out some room for the exceptions we might hear in spoken native English.
