A Bradenton woman was charged with battery after she allegedly threw a sandwich she wanted reheated at a 7-Eleven clerk.
According to a probable cause affidavit, 19-year-old Corinthian Jones ordered a pressed Cuban sandwich from the 7-Eleven at 57th Avenue West and 14th Street West on Friday evening. She paid for the food and left the store.
She was gone for about 30 minutes, and had taken a few bites out of half of the sandwich. When she returned, she asked the clerk to reheat the sandwich or give her a refund because it was cold, according to the affidavit from the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
Jones and the clerk got into a fight, and Jones walked outside to get her friend. When she walked back inside, she again asked the clerk to reheat the Cuban sandwich.
