Two city men were arrested Friday morning after the manager of a West Norwalk diner called police reporting they were giving a waiter a hard time, police said.
Police spokesman Off. Carlton Giles said the manager of the Post Road Diner, 312 Connecticut Ave., called at 1:55 a.m. about their rowdiness.
When officers arrived, the manager said three males who appeared intoxicated had entered and sat at a booth. He said they gave the waiter a hard time, so he asked them pay for their meals and leave.
He said one of them knocked dishes off a counter, which broke, and then got into an argument with him. They then ran out a back door.
Officers found them behind the diner in the Best Buy parking lot. They reported one of them men, later identified as Franklin Eaton, started to flee and was stopped after a foot pursuit.
Giles said the third male with them was found hiding in bushes. He was a juvenile and the officers didn't report that he was arrested.
Eaton, 20, of 302 Flax Hill Rd., was charged with second-degree breach of peace and third-degree criminal mischief.
Christopher Suarez, 20, of 7 Kellee Ct., was charged with second-degree breach of peace, third-degree criminal mischief and interferring with an officer.
Both were held on $500 bond and given court dates of Aug. 20.
