Man arrested after threatening Auburn coworker scheduled for sentencing

-A +A
A man who shut down Auburn Town Center in March is scheduled to be sentenced June 17. Brian Michael Scarbrough, 23, was arrested in March after he reportedly displayed a .45 caliber handgun to a Round Table Pizza employee in the Auburn Town Center on Elm Avenue. Scarbrough pleaded guilty in May in Auburn’s Placer County Jail courtroom to a felony charge of having a concealed firearm on his person. Two additional counts of residential burglary and grand theft of a firearm were previously dropped by the Placer County District Attorney’s Office. On March 17 Scarbrough, a former Round Table Pizza employee, allegedly threatened a fellow employee with the firearm, which resulted in the closure of Auburn Town Center for several hours. Auburn police officers conducted a manhunt for Scarbrough and arrested him later that morning without incident on Auburn Ravine Road. Scarbrough’s sentencing was continued during Wednesday’s court proceedings, and he is scheduled to be sentenced at 9:30 a.m. June 17 in Auburn’s Placer County Jail courtroom. Scarbrough is being held at Auburn’s Placer County Jail on $100,000 bail. ~Bridget Jones
