A dispute over a cigarette at a Hamilton coffee shop has landed a
man in hot water.
Police say they were called to the cafe at John and Jackson Streets on Thursday night after a man punched
another man in the face for refusing to give him a smoke.
They allege the man also threatened to have the other man shot.
Twenty-five-year-old Trevor Benitez-Hernandez is charged with
assault, uttering a death threat and breaching probation.
He also faces a possession charge after officers found that he was carrying a small amount of marijuana.
