BREVARD COUNTY • WEST MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – A Palm Bay man’s actions at a local fast food restaurant has resulted in his arrest by West Melbourne Police on charges of Robbery, Burglary of a Structure with a Battery and Grand Theft.
The May 27 incident at Chick-fil-A, located at 835 Palm Bay Road, was captured on video surveillance.
Maynard Mazard, 27, complained to Chick-fil-A management that his order from a previous visit had been incorrect.
As this was not the first time he had made this allegation, management questioned the validity of his complaint and ultimately decided not to issue him a refund.
Mazard believed an employee from the kitchen was taking his photograph through a glass window.
In response, Mazard walked behind the customer service counter, entered the kitchen and accosted the employee by aggressively taking his cell phone out of his hand.
Mazard then violently threw the cell phone to the ground, rendering the $700 phone inoperable. His actions placed the employees in fear for their safety.
On June 11, a West Melbourne Police Detective obtained an Arrest Warrant for Mazard, and he was taken into custody without incident.
Mazard is being held on a no bond status and is scheduled to appear before a Brevard County Judge for First Appearance at 1:15 p.m. today.
The charge of Burglary with a Battery is a first degree felony, which if convicted, is punishable by life in prison.
