FAIRFIELD — Jack Caserta, 18, of Hoydens Hill, allegedly walked behind the counter at McDonald’s, 536 Post Road, just before midnight on May 5.
According to the police report, a group of teens was reportedly yelling at and berating an employee at the restaurant. The manager told police she was handling the drive-thru window when she saw a teen, later identified as Caserta, behind the counter, playing with the cash register. She told him to leave, but he refused, until another customer walked over and told Caserta to leave. He then went and sat with his friends, according to the report, but then went back behind the counter, playing with the register and touching the food.
Witnesses said he berated the employees before he and his friends left in a GMC Yukon. A check on the Yukon came back to a Hoydens Hill address, and when police called, Caserta’s father said his son had the car and gave them his cell phone number. Police called the cell phone, and he allegedly admitted to being behind the counter and said he was at a friend’s house. When police called again to try and get Caserta to meet them, he would not answer the phone.
Just before 2 a.m., police located the Yukon on Sunnyridge Avenue and located Caserta. Police said he apologized for going behind the counter and said that two McDonald’s employees threatened him.
The teenager was issued an infraction for creating a public disturbance.
