Friday, October 10, 2003Don't mess with Diag
"... Employees at the Diag Party Store said the 25-year-old man came in at 2:17 p.m. [Wednesday] and cut in front of the line of customers to demand 80 cents for bottle returns, reports said. The employees said the man did not have any bottles but claimed he already put them in the back room.
After the employees refused to give the customer money, he walked to the back and tried to grab a box of returnables, then pushed an employee, reports said. Other employees said they wrestled until the employee could handcuff the man, reports said.
When officers arrived, they found the suspect handcuffed on a crate and took him into custody, police said. He said the employees attacked him and would not pay him, reports said." (AANews)
