RCMP spokesman Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says police were called to Starbucks at 202 Main St. after reports of a disturbance on Wednesday evening, Jan. 18.

Police arrived to find two intoxicated men drinking Colt 45 malt liquor on the coffee shop’s patio.

The men refused the leave the premises and were arrested by police and held in detention until they were sober, Wrigglesworth says.

Upon release, they were ticketed for consuming alcohol in a public place, a $230 fine.
