Fairfield police have arrested a 55-year-old local man accused of throwing a sandwich at a McDonald’s employee because he did not like how it was made.

Police received a 911 call at 9:47 p.m. to respond to McDonald's, 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 drive-up window, drove away, then returned and banged on the front door, which was locked, police said.

When an employee told Weglarz he could not enter the restaurant, he walked back to the drive-through window, screamed and swore at the pregnant female manager and then threw the bag of food through the drive-up window, hitting the manager in her chest, police said.

Then Weglarz continued to yell and bang on the drive-up windows until the manager yelled to her staff to call the police, at which point Weglarz fled the scene in his white BMW, police said. 

Employees had jotted down the registration plate and officers went to Weglarz’s home, where he was immediately belligerent to officers and hey took him into custody, police said.

Weglarz had a loaded Glock pistol in his waistband and was able to produce a valid Connecticut pistol permit, police said.

Police took Weglarz to the police station, released him and seized weapons and ammunition from his house, as well as a pistol permit, which will be sent to the state firearms review board.

Weglarz was charged with breach of peace, released on a written promise to appear in court and has a court date of April 9.

Weglarz was featured in a Bloomberg Businessweek slideshow online called the Rebounders.
