Police attended and arrested the male before releasing him on a promise to appear for a September court date.

The matter was an internal affair and there is no risk to the public at the business, Chief Andy Brinton added.

That same day police pulled over a driver for a burnt-out headlight on their vehicle along Fort Street entering Oak Bay. A record check showed the driver was wanted by Victoria Police for assault and VicPD attended and took custody of the male.

It only took two hours during the Thursday ICBC Roadblock on Beach Drive to impound three vehicles.
