Milford Police say a former employee of the Sonic Drive-In on the Boston Post Road returned to the fast food joint Tuesday afternoon and threatened workers.
Brooks Turner, 36, of Hamden, was arrested on multiple charges after police said officers located him a short distance from the restaurant.
He faces charges of second-degree threatening, first-degree harassment, second-degree breach of peace and first-degree criminal trespass.
Turner was additionally charged with interfering with police after he allegedly resisted being taken into custody.
Turner was held in lieu of $25,000 bond, police said Wednesday.
