Police: Man called out of work drunk, tried to rob workplace
By Todd Humber
The Gainesville Times reports 20-year-old Kentarias Gowans, of Flowery Branch, is charged with offences including aggravated assault. Oakwood Police investigator Todd Templeton says Gowans called out on Thanksgiving, went to the restaurant that night, held a gun to a co-worker’s head and demanded money.
Police say responding officers arrived to see employees running from the business, which had customers at the time. Police say an apparently still intoxicated Gowans briefly raised the gun at officers before dropping it. He was arrested after a brief struggle during which a stun gun was used.
It’s unclear if Gowans has a lawyer.
