A man who caused a disturbance at one business, then stole items from another, all in the same day, will spend a little time behind bars.
Jimmy Lynn Bad Man was sentenced to 60 days in jail after he pleaded guilty Friday in Lethbridge provincial court to charges of theft under $5,000, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, threats to cause death or bodily harm, mischief causing damage, and failure to comply with release orders.
Police were called to a city hotel about 8 p.m. Feb. 14 where Bad Man was acting strangely and arguing with employees. While he was arguing with a front-desk clerk, Bad Man picked up a statue of a horse and smashed it on the lobby floor. He also waived a box cutter in a threatening manner and threatened to beat up one of the employees.
Bad Man ran off before police arrived, but they apprehended him a short time later after he entered a nearby convenience store and stole $20 worth of food.
In addition to his jail sentence, for which he was credited 54 days spent in pre-trial custody, Bad Man was placed on probation for one year and ordered to stay away from the hotel and employee he threatened.
