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.
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.
