The price of a sandwich may be four years in prison or a fine of $2,000 for one Dearborn man.
Zachary Teeters, 26, has been charged with felonious assault after he threatened a local business owner with a knife, according to Dearborn police.
Police responded to Mango's Cafe on Wednesday at around 5:30 p.m. on reports that a man with a knife had just threatened the owner of the establishment with a knife.
According to witnesses, the man called the cafe and said that he saw an offer for a $3 sub sandwich from Mango's online. The employee informed him that there was no such offer, and that the price of a sub would be $7.94. The man subsequently ordered the sandwich.
When he arrived to pick it up, witnesses say he balked at the price and again said that someone had offered him a special deal. The owner told him again what the price was and the man allegedly became angry, knocking several items off of the front counter.
He then left, and the owner followed him outside, telling him to stop. According to police reports, the man turned around and pulled out a knife, telling the owner, "Come and get me."
The man then fled on foot, but was quickly apprehended by Dearborn police, who placed him under arrest.
The man, identified as Teeters, was charged with felonious assault.
His preliminary exam is scheduled for Friday, March 8, at 9 a.m. at the 19th District Court.
