FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Police say a drunken New Jersey man threw a sandwich at another man at a northern Virginia pizza restaurant and is now facing charges.

The Fairfax City Police Department says in a news release that 32-year-old Jonathan M. Magnes of Morristown, New Jersey, threw a sandwich at a 50-year-old man at a Fairfax pizza restaurant and then drove away.

Authorities say the victim, who was not injured, tailed Magnes before officers arrived and pulled over the suspect. It’s not clear what led to the dispute between the men.

Magnes was charged Sunday evening with assault and battery, driving under the influence of alcohol and refusal of a blood and breath test.

It’s not immediately clear whether Magnes has an attorney.
