Theodore L. Gunderson Jr., threw the salad in question at the restaurant employee because he felt it did not have enough cucumbers on it, according to Lancaster Online.

“If I had a gun or a knife you would be the first to go,” Gunderson said, according to a police affidavit.

When police arrived, Gunderson was in his car with the windows rolled up. He eventually lowered a window and police told him he was under arrest. An officer tried to grab Gunderson’s keys when he put them in the ignition. However, Gunderson was able to get the car started and began to drive off with the officer’s arm still in his car.

Gunderson was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He was in jail on $10,000 bail.

The officer was not injured.
