A Muskoka man’s inability to stay away from a local grocery store recently landed him behind bars.
Appearing virtually from a correctional facility Brandon Righetti, 29, pleaded guilty to breaching court orders by going to a Bracebridge grocery he was not supposed to be in and failing to keep the peace.
Court heard that on Dec. 21, 2019, Righetti became upset while waiting for a cab inside the grocery store. He threw his phone at the front window of the store and then threw a bottle of maple syrup inside the store.
He left the store, but police were called the next day to say he was back in the store. He left before they could arrive but he was arrested the following day in the parking lot of the same grocery store.
Speaking from custody, Righetti said the police should have handled the situation differently, but he did admit to getting out of control and throwing the bottle of syrup.
He was sentenced to 45 days of pre-sentence custody he had already served.
