A 26-year-old Wamac man has been arrested by Centralia Police on multiple charges initially being called to a report of a man entering Skipper’s Inn on South Locust Street possibly with a gun.
Police say on arrival they found Nathan Felton of Sanders Street uncooperative. He was eventually taken to the ground inside Skippers and then struggled as police were attempting to handcuff him. It turned out Felton did not have a gun.
The incident started with Felton meeting his former girlfriend outside Skipper’s to return some items. He allegedly became angry and knocked her to the ground. When two men saw Felton allegedly on top of her, they reportedly told Felton to get off. Felton reportedly responded to get back or he would kill them.
One of the men who allegedly had been threatened had a concealed carry permit and drew his gun. Felton then reportedly followed his ex-girlfriend inside Skippers and the report was made a man may have entered the establishment with a gun.
The alleged female victim did not require hospital treatment.
The incident occurred around 11:20 Friday morning.
