Police: Biscuit lover, angry over price, breaks glass at Brookhaven Waffle House

Yes, they have sausage biscuits at Waffle House. And yes, you'll be arrested if you get angry about the price and break a glass door.

Just ask Brookhaven police.

The department detailed the weekend incident in a Facebook post starting with "tip of the day" and accompanied by the hashtag "#sundaymorningshenanigans."

"When the Waffle House employee tells you the sausage biscuit is no longer $1 and the new price is $1.50 please refrain from punching the glass door open while storming out," the post said. "Glass tends to shatter when met with such force and you will be swiftly taken into custody."

An incident report obtained Monday suggests that 39-year-old Mitchell Harris Feinberg actually kicked -- not punched -- the door, but the rest of the details appeared to check out.

According to the incident report, Brookhaven officers responded to the diner at 4065 Peachtree Road shortly before 8:30 a.m. Sunday. A waitress told them a customer -- later identified as Feinberg -- became belligerent because "someone had only charged him $1 [for a sausage biscuit] on previous dates," and he was now being asked to pay $1.50.

Surveillance video reportedly showed Feinberg get up from this corner booth, throw his bill on the floor and kick the front door on his way out. The glass shattered, and Feinberg fled.

He was quickly detained outside a nearby apartment complex, and charged with disorderly conduct and second-degree criminal damage to property, police said.

Feinberg reportedly told police he "barely" kicked the door.
