Several people were inside the North Sunrise Avenue restaurant for breakfast when 24-year-old Ryan James Heater began threatening employees and jumped over a counter, according to the police department.

The first officer at the scene had his K-9 partner with him when he found Heater outside the restaurant.

One officer sustained a minor injury during the incident.
