NEW HOLLAND, PA – Police arrested a man after he threatened to kill a Wendy’s employee during an argument over the number of cucumbers in a salad.

The incident happened Sunday afternoon after 50-year-old Theodore Gunderson Jr. was served the salad he’d ordered from a New Holland Wendy’s.

Gunderson was not happy with the number of cucumbers in his salad or, more specifically, the lack of cucumbers in his salad.

Enraged, Gunderson allegedly cursed at the restaurant employee’s over the slight, then threw the salad in an employee’s face while stating, “If I had a gun or knife, you would be the first to go.”

The threatened employee called police to report the incident and to say he was in fear for his life – especially since the man was sitting in his vehicle in the parking lot.

When police arrived at the location and confronted Gunderson, he initially refused to roll down his window or exit his vehicle as instructed. When he finally did roll down the window, he put his key in the car’s ignition after being informed that he was being arrested.

When an officer reached inside the vehicle in an attempt to stop Gunderson from driving off, Gunderson started driving away with the officer’s arm still inside the vehicle.

The officer had to take multiple steps to to remove his arm and ensure he did not trip and possibly fall under the moving vehicle. The officer was not hurt and Gunderson was eventually stopped and placed into custody.

He is now facing charges of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He was arraigned this morning and committed to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $10,000 bail.
