According to Norwalk Police, Gordon Wentz, 27, of 40 Eureka St in Stamford, caused a disturbance outside Los Gemelos and Fisherman's World at the intersection of Ft. Point St and Seaview Ave, taking a bottle of hot sauce from the restaurant and smashing it in the parking lot.

Police spoke to an employee of Los Gemelos who said he had woken up Wentz who had fallen asleep at a table in the restaurant. The employee told Wentz he had to order something to eat or leave. Wentz took a bottle of hot sauce and threatened to hit a customer with it before going to the parking lot and smashing the hot sauce outside Fisherman's World.
