A Brantford man faces a slew of criminal charges after a drunken, violent spree.
On Sunday, Dec. 3, shortly before 5 p.m., Brantford police officers responded to a call about a disturbance at Tim Hortons on Dalhousie Street.
The caller reported that a male customer was causing problems, broke a coffee pot and threatened employees. The officers arrived and arrested the accused. Witnesses say the accused had been openly drinking from a bottle of rum inside the restaurant.
After an employee told the accused he was not permitted to drink inside the business, the man became belligerent. He yelled and screamed at the employee and refusing to leave.
The accused followed the employee behind the counter, grabbed an empty coffee pot and threw it at the employee, striking him in the foot and breaking the pot.
The accused continued to disturb patrons. He demanded a cigarette from a woman and threatened to assault her if she didn’t hand one over.
Officers learned that earlier in the day, at around 4 p.m. the accused took a bottle of rum, which he didn’t pay for, from the LCBO on Market Street.
Before 4 p.m. at the Brantford Casino gift store, the accused took a five-dollar bill from an employee and threatened the employee. When security officers approached the accused, he dropped the money and left the casino.
Aaron David Ross, 34, of Brantford faces charges of mischief under $5,000, two counts of uttering threats, causing a disturbance, two counts of assault with a weapon, robbery, two counts of theft under $5,000, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and four counts of breach of probation.
The accused was held in custody for a bail hearing.
