Coronavirus: Toronto BBQ owner who defied lockdown order taken into custody

Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Toronto BBQ owner who defied lockdown order taken into custody” – below is their description.

The owner of a Toronto restaurant who reopened indoor dining earlier this week despite coronavirus lockdown restrictions was seen being taken away from his restaurant in handcuffs Thursday. Adam Skelly, the owner of Adamson Barbecue, was seen being led away by police hours after officials changed the locks at his business. It’s not yet clear what charges, if any, Skelly may face after being detained. Earlier in the week, the restaurant reopened indoor dining and opened again on Wednesday, despite a closure order from the city’s medical officer of health. A large crowd gathered outside of the restaurant for the third day in a row, along with a large police presence including officers from the mounted unit. Supporters of the barbecue owner jeered police officers as they placed Skelly in the cruiser, while others chanted anti-lockdown sentiments.
