RCMP were able to restore the peace outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Nanaimo last week.

Nanaimo RCMP, in a press release, noted that that they were called out at about 5:30 a.m. to a fast food restaurant in the north end following reports that an individual was “yelling, screaming and banging on car windows.”

Officers arrived to find the man sitting on the curb and hanging his head, and he told them that he hadn’t slept in three days, was desperate for coffee and drug paraphernalia, and “was not doing so well.”

The officer offered the individual water and a ride downtown, which he declined.

“He apologized for his actions and said that he would take the bus and leave the area,” the release noted.
