NATICK, Mass. (AP) - All the customer wanted was coffee.
Instead, he needs four new tires.
Police say a worker at a Massachusetts Dunkin' Donuts slashed
the tires on a customer's Jeep after the two got into an argument
Thirty-nine-year-old Thomas Zazulak was charged with malicious
destruction of property and disturbing the peace.
Police say the dispute broke out when the customer - whose name
wasn't released - started to leave because he was tired of waiting
for the cup of coffee he ordered.
Words were exchanged, then Zazulak allegedly followed him
outside, pulled out a folding knife and slashed the tires.
Police said the clerk, the only worker on duty, then resumed
serving customers. Zazulak did not return a telephone message left
at his home in Framingham.
