On June 2, James Adam Hirsh went into a Dillons grocery store and made quite a cluckin’ scene, authorities said.

Police said the incident was over “Chick-fil-A sauce being on sale.”

They did not know whether the price was lowered or it just being on the shelves caused the disturbance with an employee, police said.

The Wichita Eagle reported a Facebook post in a Wichita Bad Drivers page that stated the incident was “over Dillons having Chick-fil-A sauce” and the “store refusing to remove it from the shelves.”

There was a video with the post, which showed a black car inches away from the door and the driver appeared to be honking the horn, authorities said.

Wichita police spokesman Charley Davidson told the Eagle, “Hirsch was asked to calm down or leave the store when he began throwing punches. Private security detained Hirsh until he calmed down. Hirsh then threatened staff, exited the store and got into his car. He drove his vehicle toward the entrance doors of the business, where staff were standing before leaving.”

Police said no one was hurt during the incident.

Hirsh was arrested at his home on June 2 and charged with three counts of aggravated assault and one count of aggravated criminal threat, authorities said.
