Patron Peels Out, Apologizes
A man admitted to police that he behaved inappropriately after telling a young employee to kill himself outside a downtown Batavia business. The employee was handling parking and saw the man head in the wrong direction in the lot. The man said "he didn't have to listen to a kid, told him to 'kill himself,' then peeled out of the parking area," according to a police report.
The reporting officer spoke to the man at 7:14 p.m. He said he didn't know the young man was an employee, as he wasn't wearing anything that identified him as an employee of the business. The man said there would be no further problems.
