Man Allegedly Assaults Diner Workers in Bridgeport Over Food Order

A man was arrested for assaulting a security officer and diner employee after a dispute over a food order, a Bridgeport spokesperson said. 

Dennis Berrios, who has a pending case for manslaughter from 2014, is accused of third-degree assault on an elderly person, second-degree breach of peace, third-degree criminal mischief, second-degree threatening and creating a public disturbance. 

On May 1, Berrios was asked to leave a diner while causing a disturbance, the Bridgeport spokesperson, Av Harris, said. Berrios allegedly attacked a security office and diner employee after becoming irate over food he had ordered, Harris said. 

Later, officers spotted Berrios driving on Main Street with flattened tires and he was pulled over. Harris said Berrios refused to obey the officers and an investigation found that he had caused the disturbance at the diner earlier. 

While in booking, Harris said Berrios remained belligerent and threatened to kill police officers. 

Berrios' bond was set to $250,000. It is unclear if he has an attorney or when he is expected to appear in court.
