Fast-food customer irate over ranch dip charge

SEATTLE (AP) - Police say a Seattle fast-food customer who wanted three packets of ranch dressing but learned he would have to pay for the third flew into a rage and attacked a 68-year-old man who tried to calm things down.

On their website, police say the ranch fan at a Jack in the Box restaurant started yelling about being overcharged when he was told the third packet would cost 25 cents.

Trying to prevent a scene, the cashier gave the customer a third container of dressing Monday but that didn't sooth him.

At that point, a 68-year-old customer who had heard all this stepped in but the irate customer shoved that man to the ground. Police say the 68-year-old was not seriously hurt.

The angry customer mumbled something about having a knife, climbed on a purple bike and rode away.
