According to the L.A. Times, Derrick Gharabighi, 24, took the last of the Nutella waffle samples when the elderly man reached to get one, prompting the senior to call out Gharabighi for being a Nutella hog. Burbank police Sgt. Claudio Losacco said, “The victim told Mr. Gharabighi that he wanted a sample and he shouldn’t take so many.” Gharabighi, serious about his Nutella snacks and not keen on being scolded, punched the 78-year-old in his face. He had to be taken to the hospital after the punch left him with a 1-inch gash above his left eye.
The dude might've had an ill case of the munchies and just couldn't afford to not have all of the Nutella samples.
Gharabighi was arrested and is being held on $50,000 bail. He’s been charged with elder abuse and inflicting significant bodily harm on an elderly person. He could get up to 11 years in prison.
