It happened around 11:30 at the Sunnyside Oyster Bar in Williamston, when some employees noticed a man slashing tires. The suspect cut about 6 to 8 tires on 3 cars, then fled the scene on foot. Some of the oyster bar employees and Williamston Police chased after the suspect, and he was taken into custody at Wings and Things Sports Bar. Police are still trying to figure out why he was slashing tires.
