A man from Ohio was arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot employees at a Butler Township restaurant.
Timothy Roy, 55, of Bowerston was arrested Wednesday night following an incident at Rachel’s Roadhouse in Butler Township.
Butler Township Police were called to the restaurant about 10:30 p.m. The store’s manager told officers that an irate customer- later identified as Roy- ordered food for takeout and “started flipping out” because the food was taking too long– according to court documents. Once the order came out, Roy allegedly appeared even more upset because the food was on a plate and not in a takeout box.
Another patron in the store allegedly told police that Roy said he was going to “go to his truck, get his gun, and shoot the cooks and employees.” Roy then left without taking or paying for his order – and township police say the restaurant was put on a lockdown.
Officers found out Roy was staying at the nearby Fairfield Inn. Troopers found him and arrested him. They allege he was “highly intoxicated.” He allegedly denied threatening to shoot anyone. Police found a small folding knife on him, but no gun.
Roy is free on $10,000 bail.
