A 51-year-old California man was cited for disorderly conduct after he took a knife into a restaurant kitchen to complain about the way his gravy was prepared.
According to the Oak Creek police report:
A witness observed the suspect holding a five- or six-inch knife behind his back while walking towards the kitchen area at Denny's Restaurant, 9650 S. 20th St., shortly before 3:30 a.m. Sunday. The suspect entered the kitchen and walked into the cook line, where he started to complain about the way his gravy was made.
When an employee asked the suspect to leave, he told her to call the police. The employee then stated she noticed the man had a knife in his right pocket.
Police pulled the suspect's vehicle over near South 39th Street and West Ryan Road in Franklin, where they found a black and silver knife in the front passenger side of his car.
The suspect admitted eating at Denny's and pulling out a knife. He told police he went to complain to management about his food, and when he walked towards the kitchen he pulled the knife to protect himself. The suspect did not point or threaten anyone with the knife.
He was issued a citation for disorderly conduct.
