Disgruntled, drunk fast food worker arrested
Wednesday evening, officers responded to a local fast food restaurant after receiving a complaint of one employee harassing and making threats to another.
Upon arrival, officers met with the complainant who indicated 39-year-old Charles Mikalauski was intoxicated, had thrown buns at him and Mikalauski reportedly told the complainant he (Mikalauski) did not like working with him. Mikalauski then allegedly threatened to kill him. As a result of Mikalauski’s behavior, two employees left their shifts early.
According to officer notes, upon contact Mikalauski carried a heavy odor of intoxicants about his person. Despite denying the allegations, Mikalauski was taken into custody on a charge of Disorderly Conduct. A Preliminary Breath Test was conducted, on which Mikalauski registered a .22 and was also found to be on probation.
Upon further investigation, a “powerade” container was later discovered in the restaurant which carried the odor of intoxicants. Management advised officers of Mikalauski being terminated and prohibited from the property. He was later transported to the Lincoln County Jail.
