Sandusky police were called to Cobbs Ice Cream Sunday afternoon after a customer became angry when told the cost of a small sundae.

“He told the clerks that the prices were too high and that when he was in prison he could get bigger sundaes for a cheaper price,” said Sgt. Kevin Youskievicz. “ He then started swearing at them and spit at them.”

Police say James Pennington spit through a window towards the two employees. He missed both of them and then took off.

Pennington faces two charges of disorderly conduct and menacing.
