RACINE — A reported felon looking for some food early Sunday apparently after a night of drinking allegedly pointed a gun at a Popeye’s restaurant employee who refused to let him inside, according to a criminal complaint.
Quincy R. Brown II, 23, of Racine, was charged Monday in Racine County Circuit Court with a felony count of possession of a firearm by a felon and six additional misdemeanor counts, each as a repeater.
Racine Police initially responded to the Popeye’s restaurant at 920 Washington Ave. at about 2:40 a.m. on Sunday for a report of a man waving a gun in the air, according to the report.
The employee reportedly told police that he was at the restaurant when multiple people started causing problems outside and trying to gain access at a time when only the drive-through was open for business, according to the complaint.
The employee then confronted the group of people and Brown reportedly attempted to enter the restaurant, according to the complaint. When he was stopped by the employee, Brown allegedly showed the person a pistol on his waist before he raised it and pointed it at the employee’s head.
Brown reportedly pointed the gun at the employee’s head for a full three seconds before he walked back into the crowd, according to the complaint.
One person reportedly told police that Brown and others had been drinking at a bar in Kenosha and then drove to Popeye’s to get some food, according to the complaint. Brown was charged with violating bond conditions in three separate court cases.
Brown made his initial court appearance on Monday and Court Commissioner Alice Rudebusch set cash bond in the case at $1,000 and a preliminary hearing for June 26.
As of Monday night, Brown remained in the Racine County Jail, according to electronic records.
