A manager reported that at about 10:30 a.m. a mother of a former employee came into the store and began yelling at her. She was apparently upset that her daughter had recently resigned. The manager said the woman was yelling loudly and causing a scene. The manager said the woman also tapped her on the shoulder while yelling.
Police spoke with the woman at her residence and she admitted to being at the scene. She said she was upset because she believed the management at the Dunkin Donuts forced her daughter to resign. Police advised her that they were no longer welcome at the Dunkin Donuts.
