Irate patron throws food at pregnant employee

Fairfield-iratecustomerWhen a Fairfield man discovered his fast food was not cooked to his specifications, he got angry.

Geoffrey E. Weglarz, 56, of Fairfield Woods Road, allegedly grew irate when he went through the drive-thru at McDonald’s, 1835 Black Rock Turnpike, on March 26 at 9:47 p.m. His food was not made the way he wanted it.

Weglarz initially drove away, but returned to the restaurant upset and began banging on the locked doors. He was told he could not enter.

So Weglarz allegedly walked to the drive-up window and began screaming and swearing at the pregnant manager. He eventually threw his bag of food, hitting her in the chest. As he continued to yell and bang on the window, the manager told staff to call the police.

At that point, Weglarz left the scene, but not before employees recorded the registration off his car. Police used that information to locate Weglarz at his home.

According to police reports, he grew belligerent with officers immediately and was taken into custody. In the process, a loaded pistol was discovered tucked into the front of his waistband. Weglarz had a valid Connecticut pistol permit for the gun.

Weglarz was taken to headquarters and charged with breach of peace. He was released on a promise to appear in court on April 9.

Officers returned to Weglarz home and seized additional weapons and ammo, as well as his permit. The Connecticut Firearms Review Board will evaluate the case and determine if Weglarz’s permit can be returned. Police said it is unlikely, and once revoked, it will probably never be reinstated.
