Glenn D. Brown

At around 8:20 p.m. on June 22, police responded to the Kwik Stop at the corner of Leota and Dewey on a report of two men creating a disturbance in the store.

Upon arrival, police made contact with Glenn Brown, 23, as he was leaving the store. Brown, who was intoxicated, told the officers that he was in the store with a friend and felt the store employee was being racist.

Brown’s 24-year-old acquaintance told police that the clerk refused to sell him tobacco because he did not have the required identification, but he said the situation didn’t bother him, according to the police report.

Brown became belligerent and refused to comply with the directions of the police, who eventually tried to arrest him for disturbing the peace. When police tried to put Brown in a patrol car, he kicked the door and banged his head, cutting his head, police spokesman Rodney Brown said.

Police took Brown to the emergency room at Great Plains Health for minor medical attention for the cut, and then took him to jail.  He is charged with resisting arrest, second offense, and disturbing the peace. Bond is set at $25,000.
