The victim reportedly told his assailant that he “shouldn’t take so many.”

A verbal dispute between two Costco shoppers in Burbank, California turned ugly when, while debating whether one of them had taken too many Nutella waffle samples, one punched the other in the face.

Derrick Gharabighi, 24, reportedly took a number of samples before he was scolded by a fellow Nutella fan, 78, for taking more than one. Gharabighi responded by punching the unidentified man in the face, police officer Cindy Guillen told the Los Angeles Times.

“The victim told Mr. Gharabighi that he wanted a sample and he shouldn’t take so many,” said another officer, Claudio Losacco.

The elderly man was taken to the hospital with a one-inch cut and swelling above his eye. The Nutella hogger meanwhile, was arrested and is being held on a $50,000 bail. He has been charged with elder abuse and inflicting great bodily harm on the victim.
