SANDY -- Police cited a Dairy Queen customer after he got upset over the thickness of his milk shake.

The 48-year-old man went through the drive-through at the Dairy Queen on 9300 South at 1300 East in Sandy and ordered a shake. Apparently he thought it was just too thick. He went back into the store to ask for a thinner one.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the same 16-year-old who made the first shake made another for the man, but it was still too thick for him.

Police say he threw the shake at the employee, hitting him in the chest, then left. Other workers and Dairy Queen customers wrote down the license plate number of the man's car as he drove off.

Police tracked him down and cited him with simple assault. Police told the Tribune the man admitted he overreacted.
