The Weekly Vice) - William Hotz, a 59-year-old Valley Stream man, was jailed Wednesday after he repeatedly punched a female cashier in the face because she wouldn't accept an expired coupon for a free ice cream cone.
According to Nassau County police, Hotz went to a local ice cream shop, and ordered a $3.50 ice cream cone.
After he received his order, he attempted to pay for it with an expired coupon that offered "one free ice cream cone."
When the 55-year-old female cashier told him that his coupon was expired and that he'd have to pay for his ice cream cone, Hotz became angry and stormed out of the shop. When the cashier followed him outside, Hotz retaliated by repeatedly punching her in the face.
When officers arrived on the scene, Hotz took a combative stance, flailed his arms and refused to be taken into custody. Officers on the scene waited for backup before finally placing Hotz under arrest.
The victim received cuts and swelling to her lip, but refused medical treatment.
Hotz was booked into jail and charged with robbery and resisting arrest.
