FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A Bridgeport man was charged with fighting a 60-year-old man over use of a supermarket bottle return, according to Fairfield police reports.
The incident occurred at the Super Stop & Shop on Villa Avenue on Thursday morning, according to police reports. Two men got into an argument in the store’s bottle return area over who had arrived first and could use a machine, police say.
Verrol Clarke, 42, of Bridgeport punched the other man in the face during the argument, according to police reports. The victim, a 60-year-old man, declined medical attention at the scene, police said.
