A Royston man has been charged with assault, criminal damage and a public order offence, after a freezer was climbed on at the town's Tesco Extra store last month.
Police attended the superstore in Old North Road, on Sunday, January 31, after it was reported that a man had climbed onto a freezer and was behaving aggressively.
Officers attended the scene just after 3pm - and the store was evacuated while they dealt with the incident.
Daniel Hand, of Tennyson Close, was charged on Monday last week.
The 29-year-old is due to appear at Stevenage Magistrates' Court on March 1.
