Man Jailed For Pointing Fake Gun in Welsh Kebab Shop After Refusing to Wear Mask

A man who waved a fake gun in a kebab shop after refusing to put on a face mask on in November 2020 was sentenced to 20 months in jail, South Wales Police said on June 1.

Officials said 57-year-old Paul Griffiths walked into a kebab shop on Gelligaled Road and tried to order food without wearing a face mask. When the owner of the kebab shop asked him to put on a mask, Griffiths refused, and was then asked to wait outside.

Footage shows Griffiths pulling an imitation firearm from his jacket and pointing it at people in the store.
