SPRINGDALE, Ark. (CBS Local) — A man who allegedly hit a store manager with pizza bagels and then slapped an employee at a nearby restaurant is facing multiple charges, authorities said.
Police were called to the scene Sunday afternoon in Springdale, Arkansas.
Officers say Rogers Bridendolph, 49, berated a cashier before stealing a box of Bagel Bites from a Dollar Tree store and pushing the manager out of his way to escape the store, CBS affiliate KFSM reported.
The manager said he followed Bridenolph out of the store, where he hit him in the head with the box, according to an arrest report.
