Police News – Man goes wild at McDonald’s
Last Monday, August 1st, at around 8:00 pm, two officers with the Regie de police Memphremagog (RPM), while patrolling downtown Magog on bicycles, saw two men smoking a joint and drinking beer in a truck. The men were arrested near the intersection of Principale Ouest and Laurier. They were reportedly surprised to be apprehended by officers on bicycles. On Tuesday, August 2nd, the RPM received a call about a hit and run at 65 Principale Est, in Magog. The person who reported it had parked her vehicle in front of the Post Office when another vehicle hit her side mirror and kept going. The woman then began following the vehicle in her car and when she noticed the erratic driving of the driver, she stopped following and called the police, giving them the license plate number and the direction the vehicle was headed, towards Ste-Catherinede-Hatley on the Magog Road. The driver of the vehicle in question was soon found at his residence and the 33 year-old was arrested and brought to the station where he failed two alcohol tests. He had previous arrests for the same type of offence.
After midnight on Wednesday night, a 19 year-old man was bothering the employees and clients at the McDonald’s Restaurant, in Magog, even jumping up on the counter and demanding the employees to light his cigarette. When the restaurant’s manager asked him to leave, the man jumped back up on the counter and hit the manager in the head. An employee with help from a client wrestled the suspect to the ground and held him there while waiting for the police to arrive. He was arrested by the RPM and, until he appears in court, he is not allowed to consume alcohol or drugs or go to the McDonald’s, in Magog.
Late on Thursday night, around 11:45, witnesses reported seeing a nude woman sitting on the grass on CalixaLavalee Street, in Magog. The police arrested the woman, who was under the influence of an unknown substance at the time, for indecent exposure, breaking probation and solicitation.
