(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct related charges after throwing his McDonald’s sandwich because he didn’t like it, according to police reports in Connecticut.

Fairfield police have arrested the man, who is 55-years-old, accused of throwing the sandwich at a McDonald’s employee because he did not like the way his sandwich was prepared.

Police received an emergency call at 9:47 pm from McDonald’s, located at 1835 Black Rock Turnpike, because a man was out of control at the drive-through window, police said.

Police said Geoffrey Weglarz, of Fairfield, placed an order at the window of the drive-through, moved away and came back and hit the front door, which was locked, police said.

When an employee told Weglarz that he could not enter the restaurant, he went back to the drive-through window, yelled and cursed at the manager, who is a pregnant woman and then threw the bag of food through the window, hitting the manager in the chest, police said.

“This is the first time I see a man go crazy over a sandwich at McDonald’s,” a McDonald’s customer at the drive-through window told
Weglarz was charged with violation of the peace.
