Chik-fil-A customer arrested, mad about sandwich

MARY ESTHER — An argument over a chicken sandwich turned ugly Thursday in the Santa Rosa Mall. Michael Joel Hamby, 42, of Monahan Drive, faces felony charges for his part. “Hamby walked to the Chik-fil-A counter and accosted the employees over the price of a sandwich,” according to his arrest report from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office. When a security officer asked him to leave, he “grabbed her arm in a forceful manner” and said, “I know your name — it’s Ms. [expletive].” The officer jerked her arm out of his grip and warned him not to touch her, the report said. She had noticed a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. Hamby then ran out of the mall toward Paige Bacon Road, back to the Sears automotive department and into Sears. A deputy caught up with him at the Sears entrance and put him in handcuffs. Hamby resisted this, the deputy said. It took three deputies to restrain Hamby on the ground as he kicked and twisted. He was charged with battery, resisting an officer with violence and violating his probation for a third DUI conviction.

hey, i think chick-fil-a is way over priced too but i dont go overboard. at least i have never been arrested for that.
