Hold the pickles! Condiment leads to assault charges
MBTA Transit Police said a Quincy woman will be charged with assault after a dispute over the number of pickles on a sandwich.
In a blog posting Monday, transit officers said Tina Drouin, 49, allegedly punched a worker at Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs at the Quincy Center MBTA station Saturday afternoon.“Drouin stated the whole incident began over “too many pickles” on a steak and cheese sandwich, transit police wrote.
“As the sub maker attempted to defend herself, Drouin pushed two large very heavy jars filled with pickles and pickle juice into the sub maker, knocking her to the floor and shattering the jars,” transit police said.
Drouin tried to run away, but the Nathan’s employee chased her onto Hancock Street, where transit officers and Quincy Police arrested her.
The suspect was transported to a hospital after complaining of neck pain. It’s unclear what injuries the worker suffered.
Drouin is expected to be arraigned in Quincy District Court on assault charges.
