Bethel Man Throws Glass at Local Pub Manager After Credit Card Misplaced, Police Say
If there's one thing people take very seriously these days, it's a misplaced credit card. With it being the holiday season and reports of fraud running rampant, the concern is understandable, but one Bethel man may have taken things a bit too far.
At around 11:50 PM on Saturday (Nov. 26), the Bethel Police Department responded to the Meeting House Pub on Stony Hill Road on a report of an irate customer. A press release from the department says that 51-year-old James Willsey of Bethel allegedly became very angry with the Meeting House staff after his wife's credit card couldn't be found.
At one point, Willsey walked into the manager's office uninvited and screamed profanities, which were captured on the manager's 911 call. Then, Willsey allegedly grabbed a glass that was inside the office and threw it at the Meeting House Pub's manager, injuring his leg and breaking the glass.
James Willsey was arrested and charged with breach of peace and criminal mischief, and was released on a promise to appear in court on December 6.
It was not at all determined exactly how the card was lost. It could have been accidentally given to another customer, or simply returned and misplaced by the card owner.
