A 46-year-old Chilliwack man is facing charges of assault and uttering death threats after a fracas at Dukes Country Pub last week.

Police said the suspect tossed around bar stools and threw an ashtray at the bartender’s head, before leaving the pub to ram the bartender’s truck with his own vehicle.

“The man was known to the employees of the bar, but it is not known what exactly set him off,” Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said.

“It was an unfortunate incident that was most likely alcohol related,” she said.

Police were called to the pub by a report of an “out of control” patron on Oct. 27 shortly after 10 p.m.

The suspect was arrested and is facing several charges including assault with a weapon, uttering death threats, dangerous driving and impaired driving.

The bartender suffered an injury above his eye.

A police investigation continues.
