FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Managers at a Franklin Chuck E. Cheese had a man arrested after he was acting suspiciously inside the restaurant.

It was the second call in a matter of minutes the Franklin Police Department received about 20-year-old Matthew Muns.

The first call came from the Walmart on Mallory Lane.

"He basically grabbed her (a cashier) and started asking her out for a date. He actually got on top of the register at the checkout," a manager told a police dispatcher.

Managers quickly removed Muns from the store.

"When he was escorted to the door he was acting unusual, like he was on drugs," the manager said to police.

Once outside, Muns quickly walked away from the store.

"While officers were en route there, they were unable to locate him. But a few minutes later a call came in from a second location," said Lt. Charlie Warner, spokesperson for the Franklin Police Department.

The call came from a manager at Chuck E. Cheese, just down the street from Walmart.

"We just got a call from the manager at Chuck E Cheese, I think this is going to be the same subject," a police dispatcher told an officer in the area.

Witnesses said Muns was causing a scene inside the kids theme restaurant.

"I don't know if he's on drugs or intoxicated, but he is not talking coherently," said a store manager when he called police.

Officers were already in the area and quickly responded to the restaurant.

"When we tried to talk, and ask him about any weapons on him, or anything, he immediately tensed up his arms and resisted us," according to Franklin Police officer Andrea Clark.

She was assisted by another officer after the claim the suspect started to resist arrest.

"At that point he jerked away from myself and Officer Fantoni, and we assisted him to the ground to make sure it was a safe environment for all the families and children there," Clark added.

After the two officers took Muns to the ground, he was placed under arrest and taken to the Williamson County Jail.

"Officers reported there were a lot of people inside. The fact is, Chuck E Cheese is place parents take children to play, not see suspects like this fight with police," Warner said.

Muns was charges with public intoxication and resisting arrest. He was still in the Williamson County Jail Thursday night on a $1000 bond.
