Customers wrestle down man flinging food at restaurants
On Thursday, June 29 a 20-year-old Rowland Heights man created quite a scene at Espiau’s, Union on Yale, Pizza N Such, Blaze Pizza and Eureka Burger, after he took food off diners’ tables and threw it at them, Det. Reyes said. Manuel Avila also reportedly asked female diners if they wanted to “see his beef.” Once he got to Eureka Burger at about 9:30 p.m., two customers fought back and held him down until police arrived. During the scuffle, Mr. Avila fell into a large glass window, causing a large crack that had an estimated repair cost of $400, Det. Reyes said. Mr. Avila was arrested for battery and vandalism and transported to CPD jail.
