Man Pleads Guilty In Head Shop Rampage

Tools

A 49 year old Watertown man has pleaded guilty in connection with smashing parts of a local head shop with a baseball bat.

Last July, Daniel Avery broke the glass front door of Tebb's Head Shop on Eastern Boulevard as well as a glass display case and some store merchandise.

He told 7 News he was upset with the shop for selling his son bath salts.

Avery said his 24 year old son, Justin, became ill and was hospitalized after overdosing on the synthetic drug.

Even though his son recovered, he said it made him mad and he felt he had to do something, so he went to the shop to tell them that selling the substance is wrong.

Avery was charged with third degree criminal possession of a weapon, third degree criminal mischief and second degree menacing.

The weapon and criminal mischief charges were upgraded to felonies because Avery was convicted of a burglary in 1982.

On Friday, Avery pleaded guilty in Jefferson County Court to a reduced charge of fourth-degree criminal mischief.

He received a conditional discharge and was ordered to make restitution in the amount of $638.98.
