Arlington Man Arrested After Alleged Dunkin’ Donuts Incident
A Dunkin’ Donuts employee on Broadway gave a 20-year-old Arlington man a cup of coffee Wednesday morning, despite him being 30 cents short. In turn, the man exited the store and chucked the coffee at one of its glass windows, according to police.
He then re-entered the store and threw a container of straws and sugar packets at an employee, police said. Later, while he was being arrested, he allegedly spit on a police officer.
Anthony Wall was arrested shortly after the incident at about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday. He was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, assault on a police officer, five counts of possession of a Class B drug and three counts possession of a Class E drug. Wall was also involved in an incident on Fremont Court earlier that morning, police said.
Wall allegedly threw the container of straws and sugar packets at an employee after he was told to leave the store. The container did not strike the employee, police said. He later spit at a police officer, police said, with the saliva landing on the officer’s right pant leg.
Wall allegedly had the drugs on him.
