According to Krem.com, Gary Gottula, 33, was arrested and charged with 2nd degree Robbery and 2nd degree Assault after he went completely berserk over the price of a box of donuts.
Witnesses claim that when Gottula found out a box of donuts would set him back $3.99, he lost his cool and started knocking products off the shelves and attacking people in the store. Christina Diperna claims he charged the small elderly clerk working at the time saying, “I’m going to hit her.”
The police added that Gottula spat in the clerk’s face and threatened her with a syringe before “throwing a doorknob at a group of women.” It sounds like Gottula may be addicted to more than just sweet delicious donuts. Unless the article was wrong and it was actually a box of cronuts. I could see someone going this crazy over cronuts. I’m guessing they were actually cronuts.
Amazingly, no one was injured during the rampage — though at this point, the donuts in that box may be a bit crumbly.
