ROSWELL, Ga. – An Atlanta man was arrested Jan. 16 after allegedly making threats at a local restaurant.

Police were called out to the Chili’s restaurant on North Point Parkway at 9:30 p.m. after a call of a rowdy patron who would not leave. Staff pointed to Gregory Kehl, 58, of Atlanta, who was allegedly drunk and trying to talk to other customers “making them uncomfortable,” reported the officer.

A check of Kehl turned up outstanding warrants in Iowa and Tennessee, however neither state would extradite. Police asked Kehl to leave and he agreed.

Five minutes later, 911 received another call from the restaurant saying Kehl had returned and was threatening customers by saying he had a gun on him. He allegedly told one woman he would kill her. A search of Kehl resulted in no weapons, however he was arrested for making terroristic threats and trespassing.
