Man convicted of running naked through Superstore receives sentence

A bizarre incident at a Superstore in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan has finally reached its conclusion.

In March, 51-year-old Calvin John Jobb, was apprehended while running wild and naked through the grocery store, after which a video of the scene went viral online.

Court documents show that Jobb had smoked what he thought was marijuana, but what was actually crystal meth.

His lawyer clarified that his client was convinced people had put electronic tracking devices in his clothes and that’s why he removed them.

Witnesses saw Jobb swing a broom stick, yell at customers, damage cash registers and jump into one of the meat coolers.

It took four officers to get him out of the store and, at one point, he grabbed one of their tasers.

Jobb, who has been sentenced for various offences 68 times before, was facing 12 months in jail, but will now only face four months along with various restrictions.

He’s been ordered to pay $196 to cover the cost of meat and other food that had to be thrown away after his arrest.

He is also banned from Superstore as well as bars and liquor stores.
