Ocala, Florida — An argument between a customer and a server over a wrongly prepared hamburger prompted Ocala police to respond to the Ocala Applebee’s.

Ocala police said that the general manager of the business stated that an irate customer started the argument with a server over a hamburger.

When Police arrived, they made contact with the customer, identified as Osvaldo Alfonso, 51.

Police reported that Alfonso “immediately became irate” when asked about the argument that had taken place with the server.

Police said that Alfonso began screaming profanities and refused to cooperate.

During questioning, Alfonso approached one of the officers in an aggressive manner, grabbed her right arm, and pushed her.

Alfonso then approached a patrol car and demanded that he be taken to jail.

When police asked Alfonso to step away from the patrol car he began shouting obscenities.

According to reports, Alfonso then approached the front of the business and began yelling at customers as they were exiting.

When asked to calm down, Alfonso again approached the patrol car and struck the driver’s side door with his fist.

Police then offered Alfonso a ride in the patrol car as they attempted to handcuff him.

Alfonso changed his mind about the ride and resisted arrest.

He was eventually handcuffed and transported to the Marion County Jail.

He was charged with Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Arrest, and Disorderly Conduct.

Police said that Alfonso was intoxicated.

The hamburger was apparently missing the lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickle and had actually been ordered by Alfonso’s friend.

      What Ocala did you grow up in, you obviously don’t remember Vera’s Inn or the Brown Derby? Does anyone remember the bar that used to be where the new Rural King is?

        Ocala was a pretty good place with low crime until we were invaded by undocumented and documented aliens.

        • Ocala native

          Your an idiot, look at mugshots. It’s been invaded by drugs, white trash and thug ass blacks.

  • Idiot.

  • I’m a server and I have no tolerance for this kind of behavior. If I feel like you’re intoxicated or have an attitude problem I’m letting the manager handle it. I do not get paid enough to deal with people’s problems I’m here to serve the food they ordered let the managers who make salary deal with it.

  • Smdh what an idiot

  • “What? No lettuce, tomato, onion?” Hold my beer! 😂😂

  • Unfortunately this happens consistently at this location and the management team are blamed for these ignorant people either causing fights or the people getting up and walking out and not paying their tabs why all the commotion is going on. The management team as well as the rest of the staff have been left to work in a hostile work environment because their direct management above them has refused to do much of anything but place blame on the people in the restaurant. So thank you for helping give ammunition to the people who work in this restaurant by posting this.

  • If that article is accurate, they gave that out-of-control idiot WAY too much latitude. He should have been cuffed the moment he grabbed that officer. Crazy.

  • When did this happen? This guy was at Applebee’s last Monday evening for karaoke and he sings horribly!!

  • Manu Ramos your Peeps?

    • Lol I have no idea who the fuck that is

  • Now how did I guess booze was involved? Add this to poor impulse control and bingo not Mr. Happy. Hope he’s not

  • I’m trying to figure out why he wasn’t tased the minute he put his hands on that Officer?? Noy today fool.

  • People make mistakes..especially when I have drank too much! This man was a former customer of mine and he is a very very nice person..give it a rest!

    • I agree, super nice guy.

    • Mike Rogers

      I’m sorry but very very nice person or not those of us who don’t drink or behave like this shouldn’t have to tolerate obscenities and foul language when we go out to eat. And when he approached the officer in an aggressive manor he also put innocent bystanders not to mention the officer at risk. If you can’t handle your alcohol say home or except the consequences.

  • Crazy ass mexican, it’s no surprise.

  • Tom Smith

    Drunk guy acts stupid. This is not news. Why put this particular guy on blast for drunken stupidity?
