Man pays court €500 after bizarre incident involving tomato sauce in Kerry chipper
You couldn't make this up.
The staff at a chipper in Sneem called the Hungry Knight were going about their business one Saturday night last September when a customer's actions put the fear of God into them.
It was 2am on September 20 when a local man named Mindaugas Knyza entered the premises and then things took a turn for the worse.
According to The Irish Times, the 37-year-old, who works as a chef, picked up the tomato sauce and mustard bottles and began squirting them in over the counter of the chipper.
The Gardaí were called, and after 15 minutes of squirting and chips being thrown, the antics was calmed down and brought to a halt.
Knyza was in court this week to answer for his actions and when asked what happened, his reply was, "I ordered chips, I don’t know what happened."
Judge James O'Connor has some stern words for him saying, "Nobody wants to hire a chef with a conviction, especially for squiriting tomato and mustard sauce all over the place."
Knyza was warned about future behaviour and paid €500 to the court poor box as an act of good will.
Only in Ireland.
