VERO BEACH, Fla. -- A man accused of punching a Sonic manager apparently after his food order came with tomatoes was jailed on a misdemeanor charge.
The reported tomato tiff that landed Michael Linn Ogborn, 36, behind bars happened April 12 at a Sonic in Vero Beach, according to a recently released arrest affidavit.
The manager of the fast food eatery told Vero Beach police Ogborn was upset with his order and desired a refund. Ogborn, the manager said, entered the employee area and started yelling at the workers.
The manager said he got the refund and thought Ogborn settled down. Instead, Ogborn punched him in the face, the manager told police.
Ogborn said he ordered food without tomatoes, but when it arrived it contained tomatoes, a key ingredient in tomato sauce and in bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches.
Ogborn said he was angry and wanted a refund. He said he punched the manager after the manager spit on his shoes.
The affidavit didn't state what Ogborn ordered, though the typical Sonic menu includes a variety of burgers, hotdogs and chicken sandwiches.
Sonic, which began as a root beer and burger stand in 1953 in Oklahoma, also offers corn dogs, but tomatoes are not a common corn dog condiment.
Ogborn, of the 2000 block of 16th Avenue Southwest in Vero Beach, was arrested on a battery charge.
