Disruptive Patron at Winkler Liquor

On September 3, 2020 at approximately 7:59 p.m., officers were dispatched to a report of a patron yelling and screaming inside the Winkler Liquor Mart on Cargill Road.

While police were responding, they received a second call from the business advising that the suspect’s behavior was escalating.

The first officers that arrived on scene quickly located the suspect, who was attempting to leave in a vehicle. Through conversation with the suspect, police were able to de-escalate the situation.

Police interviewed the suspect as well as staff and determined that the adult male had been denied service after being unable to produce a valid form of identification. The male had become irate and caused a large disturbance inside the store.

No charges were laid as a result of this incident and the male was served a banishment notice from all Manitoba Liquor Mart locations.
