How Nutella Waffles Got An Old Man Punched In The Face


When it comes to getting free food samples, sometimes things can get crazy. The Burbank Leader reports that an old man was punched in the face at a Costco while in line for a free taste.

The warehouse retailer was giving away pieces of Nutella and Eggo Waffles when a 27-year-old Derrick Gharabighi began to grab more than he needed. A 78-year-old gentleman in line asked the younger man to only take one and leave the rest for his fellow customers.

Understandable, right?

His remark, however, was met with a punch to the face by Gharabighi. The senior was taken to the hospital where he was treated for a one-inch cut and swelling to his eye.

Gharabighi was arrested for elder abuse and facing two felony charges.
