Wednesday police briefs – angry outburst; chugged chocolate milk


Woman freaks out at local gas bar

Denied smokes because she didn’t have photo ID, a woman went a bit wild yesterday afternoon at a Chatham gas bar, according to Chatham-Kent police.

It took place at a gas station on Richmond Street in Chatham. Police got the call and pieced together what happened.

Officers learned the woman went to the gas station to purchase cigarettes, but was denied when she could not provide photo identification.
