Only in Wisconsin? Angered by long line, woman throws bottles while waiting to buy bratwurst

Dec. 20, 2011

A 23-year-old woman who lost her temper at Open Pantry, 3960 N. Brookfield Road, hurled two bottles of soda at a clerk and stormed out of the business, according to city of Brookfield police.

A manager called police to the store just after 3 p.m. Dec. 15.

According to the report:

The manager said a long line at the cash register first upset the 23-year-old.

Her agitation grew when the register malfunctioned while she attempted to pay for two bratwurst. 

The customer allegedly hurled two plastic bottles of soda; one of which struck the clerk in the leg.

She promptly fled the store, but employees provided police with her contact information.

She could be cited for disorderly conduct.
