He then went outside and broke off the leg of a statue of Jack Daniels and returned screaming and threatening employees, said owner Tom Noonan.
“He ripped the leg off Jack Daniels and came back in after my employees. They couldn’t get the door shut fast enough,” Noonan said. “He finally made it through the door and started breaking bottles, throwing them on the ground and ransacking everything.”
Wright kicked the store door and ran. He was spotted a short time later in the parking lot of CVS and was eventually apprehended by officers, but he put a dent in a police cruiser after jumping on it, police said. An officer also received a hand and leg injury, according to the police report.
Hundreds of bottles of alcohol were broke by a man in Noonan's on Main Street in Hamilton. SUBMITTED
