Penticton RCMP sped through downtown yesterday (Sept. 16) evening after reports of a man hurling a large hammer toward random pedestrians.
However upon arrival, police instead found an, “intoxicated man waving around large wooden spoons.”
According to RCMP Const. James Grandy, the incident occurred on Westminster Avenue West at approximately 5:15 p.m. Several RCMP vehicles were seen patrolling the area.
RCMP say no assaults took place, and later confirmed that no charges were laid against the intoxicated man. He was held by police until sober.
No further information was provided by police.
