Barbecue owner ARRESTED
The Etobicoke barbecue restaurant owner who has openly defied COVID-19 restrictions has been taken into custody and charged with 13 offences, Toronto police say.
Adam Skelly is facing both criminal and non-criminal charges, including trespassing, intent to obstruct police, violating indoor dining rules, holding an illegal gathering and operating a business without a licence. Officers handcuffed him outside Adamson Barbecue and put him into a police cruiser around noon Thursday.
A crowd gathered Thursday outside the restaurant in support of him, with supporters swarming officers and shouting at them to let him go.
