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.

    If it was up to the US DOJ you would walk on a signature bond period. This is Obama's and Holder's approach to gun control. Penalize the law abiding and let the criminals with guns walk.

    "Brown was charged with violating bond conditions in three separate court cases." --------------------------------------------------------- Wow, he's already labeled as a felon from previous convictions, yet he's out on bond for three separate crimes. Why is he out on bond each time? Wouldn't he be pretty darn close to being considered a habitual criminal? He is racking up court cases, yet running free... drunk with a gun... and living it up instead of sitting in jail.

    The courts are getting ridiculous. Lock these m0rons up. Build more jails and prisons if needed (at least it would create more jobs). They should not be loose on the street.

    And how does a felon have a firearm again? Oh that's right, the laws are in place to keep firearms out of the hands of citizens not criminals.
