Lethbridge Police arrested a male under the influence of drugs early this morning after he disrupted a pancake breakfast.
On Aug. 24, 2018 just before 6:30 a.m. police responded to multiple calls after a male, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs, took off most of his clothes and began throwing chairs and yelling at volunteers and patrons at a pancake breakfast in a parking lot along the 300 block of 10 Street South. The male was initially compliant with the first officer on scene but when a second officer arrived he became aggressive, grabbed a chair an attempted to strike him. The officer subsequently deployed his taser, but the subject continued to resist arrest and was tasered a second and third time before officers were able gain control of him and take him into custody. The male was transported to hospital and was admitted for observation until sober.
Tyler James Robbins, 34, of Lethbridge, is charged with assaulting a peace officer with a weapon and mischief. He is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 26.
