Wendy’s customer loses it in line 

It was fast food fury.

A man who was upset about having to wait for his food at a Belmont Wendy’s restaurant allegedly caused a scene Aug. 16 that has landed him in front of a jury, according to San Mateo County prosecutors.

Authorities said Eric Casey Way, 36, thought people in the drive-thru were being served more quickly, so he went to the drive-thru line and tried to get into someone’s car.

When the driver honked his horn, Way “climbed onto the hood of the victim’s SUV and slammed his fist into the front windshield, cracking the glass and damaging the hood,” prosecutors said. The damage was about $1,000, they said.

Way has “a long history of mental illness,” authorities said.

The jury selection for Way’s trial was set to begin Wednesday morning.
