Police say Wilfred Levine was loitering inside a Dunkin’ Donuts located on East Main Street in New Britain, Conn., on Wednesday afternoon, so employees asked him to leave and ultimately wound up escorting him out, NBC Connecticut reports. But Levine returned a short while later wielding a full-size ax and looking for the employees who had turned him away. He reportedly leapt over the counter, then proceeded to smash up the inside of the store before eventually turning the ax on the shop’s large plate-glass windows.

When the first officer arrived on scene, the police allege Levine threatened him with the ax, prompting the officer to draw his weapon. Levine still refused to surrender and had to be Tasered before being taken into custody.

No one was hurt, fortunately, but the charges Levine faces include criminal attempt to commit first-degree assault, two counts of criminal attempt to assault police, two counts of first-degree criminal mischief, first-degree criminal trespass, possession of a dangerous weapon, interfering with police, second-degree breach of peace and first-degree reckless endangerment. Bail has been set at $750,000.

You know when things are way off the handle when you get a man who attacks anybody and everything including the law. Fortunately, at least the officer acted on non-lethal force and tasered this guy. Good outcome for everyone including that crazed maniac..

Register those axe's! Were not going to allow an axe with more than axe cutting blade area of 6". Grip ID must be available for any axe to be sold. Background Checks by the Department of Justice is required. The President has said that he is going to force Congress to pass legislation banning axe shows, and internet sales. California has mandated that all axe's be made out of rubber. Texas is issuing an axe to every citizen. Florida has stipulated that you don't need an axe permit. Washington DC and New York City have banned the use of an axe. The fire department in both of those cities have gone on strike. Apparently the axe issue is paramount. Talking about Paramount, Hollywood has declared that the rubber axe's don't look real on film. Governor Brown has said that it was too bad, but rubber axe's are here to stay. Me, I just have an axe to grind...

Think how much money this scum bag is costing  U.S. taxpayers. I am beginning to think we need chain gangs for idiots like Wilfred.

@TIME @TIMENewsFeed it's weird but should we praise the old fart for not shooting up the place? I bet it was the red dye in the sprinkles

@hare_mirai Да. Вот в Японии юнцы пожилого человека из кафе не выгнали бы. Наверное.
