On Thursday afternoon, Adam Skelley was spotted being led away from the scene in handcuffs. 

Skelley ignored the city's COVID-19 bylaws numerous times to reopen his food joint.

The restaurant owner took to Instagram on Monday to announce their plans to reopen despite Toronto and Peel's lockdown restrictions.

"Enough is enough, we're opening," Skelly wrote at the time.

Police have not confirmed if he was one of the two reported arrests.

Narcity reached out to the police for further information on the case. However, none could be given at this time.
